There is a threat to school buses serving Scoil Ruain in Killenaule.
It attracts students from a large catchment area including Killenaule, Moyglass, Mullinahone, Drangan, Cloneen and Gortnahoe – Glengoole
At present there are 404 students in the Killenaule School with 37 teachers and 8 support staff.
However changes in recent years to the school bus transport system means that they could lose some of the 7 buses currently serving the school.
142 students use the service – however many of them are outside the catchment area.
Deputy Michael Lowry says this could impact on both student and teacher numbers.
