Ex-army base to become school site


15/04/2008 :: Northern Ireland :: The Irish News

A pioneering educational village of Catholic and Protestant schools would be a source of new hope for Co Tyrone, education minister Caitriona Ruane said yesterday.

Up to six schools could come together on a 200-acre former British army site in the first project of its kind.

Assembly members want the MoD to hand over vacant land in the centre of Omagh to the executive for the colleges, social housing and possibly a military museum.
