St. Josephs National School official opening

The new extension of St. Joseph’s National School, Riverstown, Glanmire was unveiled. Murnane & O’Shea Ltd were the main contractors on this site.

The project consisted of the construction of 23,000 square foot extension to existing primary school which included 12 new classrooms, 5 one to one tuition rooms and a Special Needs Annex which housed two large classrooms and an observation room. Along with the new extension, we also completed various new offices for staff and administration, a new computer room, staff room and a library.

This had to be constructed while keeping the school in full use at all times, and additional care had to be given to safety matters as a result of this, as did the co operation between our site staff and the school principal.
