The case for additional car parking spaces has been made for an expanding Laois school.
The plight of Rath NS was raised at a recent meeting of the Graiguecullen-Portarlington Municipal District.
Cllr Paschal McEvoy called on the Council to meet with management at the Ballybrittas based school to assess car parking facilities at the school.
He said: “The school has become much bigger in recent times.
“They need more parking and it really is a necessity now.
“Perhaps we could look at removing part of the ditch or something like that to create extra space.”
Area engineer Philip McVeigh agreed to the meeting.
He said: “Laois County Council would be very pleased to meet with the school management to review the parking facilities at the school.”
