St. Brendan's College Belmullet has been approved a 14 room extension.
This news has been confirmed to Midwest by Mayo Fianna Fail Deputy Dara Calleary who says it's been a very difficult few months for the Erris community but this investment will have a huge knock-on effect for the entire area.
The works will offer seven new classrooms and associated facilities. In particular, funding is approved for seven general classrooms, four SET rooms; two SEN classroom, and one textiles room.
Deputy Calleary has been giving more details to Midwest News.
