Green light for Crescent College project
Crescent College Comprehensive SJ has today (June 29, 2022) warmly welcomed approval from the Department of Education for their new building project to begin next week.
This building project will incorporate a full refurbishment of the existing school and the construction of five new state-of-the-art science laboratories. (See drawing attached) It will be rolled out on a phased basis by the approved contractor Connick, with Thompsons Architects as the Design team. The work is expected to be completed by December 2023 at a cost of 12.5 million euro.
Crescent College Comprehensive SJ has provided Jesuit education in their current Dooradoyle campus since 1972. This major building project will soon allow students and staff to enjoy new facilities as they embark on their second-level Jesuit education according to Principal Diarmuid Mullins, who also says that the project, “Is a fantastic chance to redevelop our school campus,”
He also thanked the Jesuit Order and its Provincial Fr. Leonard Moloney “For their generosity in making a significant financial contribution to the science block project. This underscores the Jesuit Order’s commitment to providing an environment for academic excellence in Limerick.”
The Principal says he wants to put in place the infrastructure, “That will allow all of our students to have the best possible learning environment over the next number of years.”
He also adds that because of the generosity of Crescent College alumni, the school hopes to be able to move to a further stage of campus development which will take place after this project has been completed.
The Principal is grateful also to the college Board of Management Chair Helen O’Donnell and his predecessor Karin Fleming for all their hard work in progressing this project to the construction stage. “It is an exciting time for all of present and past students to see the school redevelopment taking place,” he concludes.
