Good news recently with the signing last Friday of the contract to complete the development of the new Ardscoil Rís. L&M Keating Ltd have been contracted to complete the project. In 2010 the redevelopment of the school went to the construction stage following almost a decade of lobbying and planning. Acting as main contractor for the project, Cordil Construction were responsible for the management of the plan, which was to see the school expand to three times the usable space on completion of all three phases. In May 2009 Cordil Construction went in to receivership.
Even with the issues the school has had to face recently they are celebrating the success of three of its graduates – Kevin McNamara, Ronan Keane and David Hogan – who were awarded entrance scholarships to University College Dublin.
