Derry City and Strabane District Council has agreed to write to the Education Authority to ask it to reconsider a recommendation to refuse a shared campus application jointly submitted by Groarty Integrated Primary and Gaelscoil Na Daróige in Ballymagroarty.

At the local authority's full council meeting on Thursday, Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley moved: "That this Council writes to the Education Authority seeking a reversal of the decision not to support the shared campus application submitted by Groarty Integrated Primary School and Gaelscoil Na Daróige."​

The motion was unanimously supported by nationalist and republican representatives while unionists abstained saying they would have required more information on the Education Authority's reasons for recommending refusal before committing.
