Cllr. Frank Durkin stalls opening of Educate Together in Marsh House in Castlebar.

Cllr. Frank Durkin has made 19 objections to the placing of the new Educate Together school in Marsh House in Castlebar. Durkin, who views Educate Together as an ‘elitist’ group, feels that all children should be educated together regardless of whether the school’s ethos is desirable to the parents, and that minorities shouldn’t be catered for.

The objections have stalled the opening of the school in Marsh House and the school will now be situated in temporary accommodation until the situation is resolved.
