The government of Saudi Arabia is planning to establish a school with an Islamic ethos in Dublin.
The plans have been announced in Arabic on the website of the Saudi embassy in Dublin which opened in September.
According to the notice, the decision to set up a school was taken at a meeting in Dublin late last month. The meeting was attended by members of the education committee of the Saudi Shura Council, an unelected body whose members advise the Kingdom's government, and Saudi Arabia's ambassador to Ireland, Abdulaziz Aldriss.
"It was decided in the meeting to establish a Saudi school to teach the children of Saudi citizens and students residing in Ireland," the website says.
