There are concerns about the future of a Dublin English language school after the company failed to pay teachers and other staff on Friday. 

Grafton College, based in the Portobello area of Dublin, caters for between 400 and 500 international students. 

Teachers at the privately owned school were due to receive monthly wages on Friday, but they did not.

They have told RTÉ News that they fear that the school has, or is about to, close. 

The representative body for English language colleges here, Marketing English in Ireland (MEI), has said it is aware of problems at Grafton College.

MEI says it is putting in place a contingency plan for students.

It also confirmed that no staff had been paid on Friday. 

MEI has said it will be in attendance at a special meeting that is due to be held at the school tomorrow morning.
