This morning the Minister for Education Ruairi Quinn TD has announced the patronage of 14 new schools due to open in 2013 and 2014. Today's announcement is the culmination of the process which began in June 2011 and demonstrates the Government is committed to providing diversity of ethos and respect for all forms of parental choice. Minister Quinn also announced a new Catholic and Church of Ireland voluntary secondary school is to open, which are to be the first new schools opened in a generation.

"I am confident that these new schools, alongside the existing schools in each area will mean that parents and students have real choice when it comes to deciding which school most reflects their own ethos," Minister Quinn said.

You can see a list of the new post-primary schools in the statement released by the Minister in our media centre.
