The north Dublin school severely damaged in a fire last week is to remain closed for at least another fortnight.

Both the junior and senior parts of Scoil Chaitríona Cailíní in Coolock will be closed until 4 November following the blaze.

Parents of children in both schools have been notified.

A meeting will take place on Wednesday to decide on the medium to long-term plans for accommodating the school children and rebuilding the school.

A number of options are being examined, including taking classrooms in other local schools or erecting prefabs on site.
