Two Carrick-on-Suir schools have received the go ahead from the local Town Council to improve accommodation for their students.

Gaelscoil Charraig na Siuire based at Coolnamuck has received planning permission to erect a temporary structure for use as a classroom at the grounds of Carrick-on-Suir Utd FC.

And South Tipperary VEC has obtained planning permission to carry out two developments at St Joseph's College, Greystone Street where Comeragh College's senior students have classes.

The first project will involve the installation of an external lift shaft and construction of a single storey extension to accommodate a toilet and open porch at St Joseph's College.

The second upgrade is an alteration to the existing vehicular entance to St Joseph's College from The Quay.

Works will include the demolition and removal of the existing wing walls, piers and gates and parts of the site boundary wall and the building of a new section of walls, piers and paving the widened entrance.

Carrick-on-Suir Town Council granted full planning permission to the Gaelscoil and Comeragh College projects last Friday.
