A local senator has called for increased staffing in a primary school in Roscommon.
At an Oireachtas meeting, Senator Eugene Murphy outlined the staffing crisis at Keadue National School.
Keadue National School is a two-teacher school with a current enrolment of 48 pupils.
The school is now under pressure to cater for the increasing number of children fleeing from the war in Ukraine.
Senator Eugene Murphy appealed to the Minister of State at the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage to ensure a third class teacher is sanctioned at the school as soon as possible.
