"Currently parents are having difficulty finding place’s in schools in this area for their children. Parents are having to travel across the city to get an education for their children.

"Lucan has one of the highest school going populations in the country and we need more ASD units in this area.”

As the motion was passed a letter will be sent by SDCC to Minister Bruton.
