Christmas wish comes true as Clintyclay wins survival fight


Christmas wish comes true as Clintyclay wins survival fight.Christmas came early for all involved with Clintyclay Primary School after a judge ruled in the school’s favour to prevent former Education Minister John O’Dowd from having it closed.

It brings to an end a years long legal wrangle over the Clonmore based school’s future.

The school community voted to transform to integrated status in response to a decision by John O’Dowd to close the school.

However, the then Minister persisted in efforts to close the school before Clintyclay took a judicial review against the decision. Judges found in their favour, but the Minister challenged the decision.
