The Taoiseach says the Department of Education is now looking at expanding the capacity of Tramore Educate Together and four other primary schools.
The five multi-demoninational schools were advised to take in a half stream of 13 new pupils for the coming year despite being over-subscribed.
Leo Varadkar was responding to questions from Roisin Shortall of the Social Democrats.
He said the Educate Together National Schools in Tramore and other areas have had a half stream of junior infants or less in their initial year of opening. In some cases that was because of the physical accomodation.
The Taoiseach said the arrangements had reflected the departments engagement with the patrons of the schools and was re-stated in correspondence and communications with the schools concerned.
However he said a case has now been submitted by Educate Together and will be considered by the Department of Education.
