Planning permission for the facility was granted in June.

It is expected to employ 36 people upon completion in 2020.

Delays in the delivery of primary care centres for Clondalkin and Lucan have been criticised by Fianna Fáil TD John Curran.

“It’s been six years since the Rowlagh Primary Care Centre was first announced under the infrastructure stimulus package with a planned completion date of late 2016. Three Ministers for Health later and finally the project has planning permission and a commitment from the HSE to begin construction early next year.

“I am urging the HSE to continue with its progress on the much-needed Rowlagh Primary Care Centre.”

He continued: “The provision of primary care and multi-disciplinary services in a community setting plays a crucial role in ensuring that those who do not need to be in acute care are removed from a hospital setting.

“Despite repeated promises there have been no primary care services in our area, which has a population of over 45,000 people, for quite some time.

“The delivery of primary care centres in the greater Clondalkin and Lucan area has faced alarming delays to date but thankfully we are now seeing some slight movement.”
