Minister Quinn’s Snub to Finn Valley School Transport Group extremely disappointing – Ó Domhnaill

Donegal Fianna Fáil Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has received confirmation that the Minister for Education Ruairí Quinn TD will not meet with a delegation from the Finn Valley School Transport Group when he is in the County tomorrow (Friday) to officially open the Finn Valley College.


Senator Ó Domhnaill said; “It is extremely disappointing that the Minister with responsibility for Education will not meet with the concerned parents about a very basic School Transport issue. This shows a total disregard for the concerns at the parents.”


“The Finn Valley School Transport Group have campaigned constructively on the catchment boundary issue over the last number of months. I have attended a number of the public meetings on the matter and I know that if the Government proceed with implementing these changes it will prevent students from certain areas of the Finn Valley attending their chosen secondary School – even though other family members may be attending that School.”


“With the Minister in the County on Official Department Business I feel he should take a short time to meet the group to hear the very logical and constructive arguments they will make.” ; Concluded Ó Domhnaill
