Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has accused SDLP Connaire McGreevy of ‘losing the run of himself’ over Clontifleece Primary School.

Speaking to Newry Times, Ruane stated, “Over the last week or so Connaire McGreevy launched into a tirade of abuse against Sinn Féin and in particular personal attacks on Education Minister John O’Dowd.

“Not only were these attacks personal they may well be libelous and Councillor McGreevy would be well to stick to the facts even though they don’t back up his argument.

“The facts of the argument are that the CCMS recommended that Clontifleece Primary School should close as it did not meet the criteria to sustain the level of education that the children deserve.

“I personally brought a delegation from the school to Stormont in order for them to put their concerns directly to the Minister.

Ruane added, “Sinn Féin will continue to work with all people concerned with Clontifleece Primary School to make the transition for pupils as smooth as possible.”
