whalsa Posted December 7, 2015 Report Share Posted December 7, 2015 It is the closure of the salmon farm which has been the important thing. Perhaps a proper investigation of why this failed might throw some real light on the situation in Skerries, rather than obsessing with the school. Forcing secondary bairns to stay on the island for their education will not save the community.No argument there re the salmon farm. The secondary school is already closed Staney Dale. The school in question is the primary school. In my opinion the closing of which would amount to the SIC abandoning the community. In areas where depopulation is an issue closing primary schools will only accelerate the problem. Skerries people may disagree but I believe closing the secondary school MAY have been the right decision but closing the primary school certainly would not be.
