The History of the Crisis

Given the age and condition of the building, maintenance has been an ongoing problem.

Following inspection by Tusla of the Montessori and NaĆ­onra schools in October and December 2017 respectively, Consultants engaged by the Archdiocese have reported that the Fire Alarm System, Emergency Lighting and fire safety in general does not meet the required standards for a building used by the public.

The cost of bringing the premises up to the required standards is beyond the resources of the parish. The only way to avoid permanent closure is to find the necessary funding, which is quite substantial, in the near future.

We appealed for your assistance and support. On Thursday, 8 February 2018, Palmerstown Parish held a very successful public meeting to discuss the crisis which the Parish Centre is facing. Suggestions were made from parishioners, community and public officials and these were all taken on board.

This was followed up by a very positive meeting with the Parish, the Archdiocese and volunteers on Wednesday, 21 February 2018, and a plan has now been put in place.
