A primary school in Drumshanbo is applying for planning permission for a new facility for children with autism.
It’s part of a significant development planned for St Patrick’s National School.
According to the planning application lodged with Leitrim County Council, it’ll include the demolition of an existing storage building.
A single-storey extension will be developed in its place, including an autistic spectrum disorder unit.
Local councillor Brendan Barry says the facility is badly needed.
