Cork City Councillors have voted unanimously to support a campaign to keep
the historic North Mon Primary School open, and at it’s current location.
The school is controlled by the Dublin based Edmund Rice Schools Trust
who want to amalgamate the Mon primary, with a nearby convent school called Saint Vincents.
But parents say tradition would be lost, and their children would be in
portacabins and would have less open space at the new location.
Chair of the North Mon Primary Parents Association Maria Higgins
says Cork City Council backing their campaign to “Keep the Mon open”
will send a strong message to Dublin
