Parents of children at a school in South Dublin have expressed their anger over plans to sell the school's playing fields.
7.5 acres of the school's land at Clonkeen College in Deansgrange are to be sold to help cover the cost of compensation to sexual abuse victims.
The Christian Brothers intend to sell two thirds of the school playing fields for an estimated €18million.
The board of management of the school are alarmed at the decision of the religious order to sell the lands in order to pay off the €10million which it pledged to the Redress Scheme for sexual abuse victims.
"As far as we understand there won't be a single balde of grass left for these children to play on after this deal is complete" says Green Party Councillor Ossian Smyth.
"They'll have a little bit of a hard yard, there'll be no grass for them to play on, nowhere for them to do sports - it's completely unfair".
