Amended plans which would allow for an extension to the boarding facilities at the Royal School Armagh have been submitted to Planning Service for consideration, Armagh I can reveal.
The school hopes to convert the Coach House to the rear of Beresford Row, just off the Mall, into residential accommodation associated with the boarding department.
The application is being advertised this week by DoE Planning Service at Marlborough House.
It will require planning approval and Listed Building Consent to proceed.
The Royal School Armagh has one of the largest boarding departments of any school on the island and the move would be a major bonus for the Royal.
The Royal School Armagh was founded in 1608 by James I and has been regarded since then as one of the leading schools in Ireland and a school which achieves considerable academic success. It is co-educational with modern facilities.
