A multi-user Education Campus on the site of the former Military Barracks site in Monaghan, designed by Oppermann Architects. This campus will provide education at primary, post-primary and further education levels. Co. Monaghan VEC is the first education authority to get sanction from the Department of Education and Skills to manage this project on a “devolved pilot basis”.
The campus will comprise:
- A 16 classroom all Irish Primary School for Gaelscoil Ultain
- A 400 pupil all Irish Post Primary School for Colaiste Oiriall
- An Institute of Further Education that will replace the existing PLC College and Theatre
- Sports Hall – to be shared by all education users on the campus
It is Co. Monaghan VEC’s plan that this multi-user education campus will be ready for occupation in September 2012. Work is currently underway onsite.
