SDLP MLA for Newry and Armagh Justin McNulty has welcomed the granting of planning approval for the new St Joseph’s High School in Crossmaglen by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council’s Planning Committee.

Speaking to Newry Times, McNulty said, “The granting of planning approval for the new build at St Joseph’s High School in Crossmaglen is a very welcome, and indeed, long overdue.



“This would not have been possible without the hard work of the Principal, Staff and Board of Governors of the school and I would hope that there are no further delays in this project so we see construction commence on site as soon as possible.

“The young men and women of Crossmaglen and indeed wider South Armagh deserve to be educated in a modern, fit for purpose school with all the ancillary facilities,” he continued.



“That’s what this new development will deliver. I wish the Principal and Board of Governors every success as the project works through to completion.

“The new build at St Joseph’s was one of a number of decisions announced for new builds in recent years, however, there has been little or no progress in many of those projects.



“This must change. Schools need new builds, children need modern, fit for purpose schools to enhance their educational environment. And those who work in our construction industry will benefit from the work too,” the local MLA added.
