People Before Profit TD for Dublin Mid-West, Gino Kenny, has strongly criticised delays to the primary care centre in Rowlagh, north Clondalkin, writes Rachel Cunningham.

The criticism was a reaction to correspondence with the HSE, which stated that the delay is caused by an issue with the transfer of land at Collinstown Community College from the Department of Education.

Mr Kenny asserted that planning permission, fire certificates and disability access certificates have all been approved for the facility.

He commented: “It is very disappointing to find yet another stumbling block when it comes to this much needed facility. People in the area have been waiting a long time and it seems that there is no timeframe for when the facility will be constructed.    

“If commitments were given by the HSE in relation to works to the school then those commitments should be honoured so that the site can be transferred.

“I have also written to the Minister of Education Norma Foley to request a report on where the discussions are currently at, and to provide a timeframe for the delivery of the centre.”
