Scoil Mháirtín, Kilworth was forced to temporarily close its doors this week as the heating system throughout the school ceased to function for a number of days.

While the school remained open on Monday, parents were contacted and asked to take their children home in the cold conditions.

A text alert was subsequently sent to parents on Monday night, informing them that the school would not open on Tuesday.
