Legal obligations raised to Dublin primary school transformation

Legal obligations have been raised to the transformation of a former Christian Brothers school building in Dublin into a primary school.

The Edmund Rice School Trust - the company and foundation of which were established in 2008 - has raised objections to the move, despite the school's patron the archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin and its Board of Management already agreeing to the plan, RTE reports.

Edmund Rice Schools Trust has been asked by the Department of Education to give up control of the building, but sources told the news provider that the trust has to adhere to its charter and is therefore expected to stick to the spirit of Edmund Rice and use its assets in the interests of Catholic education.

The Archdiocese of Dublin agreed to a plan to merge two Catholic primary schools into one Basin Lane building after enduring recent enrolment falls, with the freed up premises being used for an Educate Together school.
