A building contractor that is constructing the €30 million Maynooth Education Campus has gone into liquidation.
The Education Minister has expressed his disappointment about Sammon Contracting Ireland Ltd.
He says a re-tendering process will now be needed to complete the Kildare project, which involves the construction of two 1,000 pupil post primary schools and a shared sports facility.
Sammon Contracting was also part of the tender for the completion of five schools and one further education college after the liquidation of Carillion.
The Education Minister says this has made the process more difficult but every effort is being made to complete these facilities by September.
