DeirdreM, out of curiosity, do you believe that Catholicism should be a core principle / ethos of the Irish Education system?

Name of the thread is Should Irish be optional for the Leaving Certificate? Before I reply, could you tell me what is the relevance of your question in this context?

'Compulsion works just fine - if it didn't, we'd never have given up Irish. The truth of the matter is that we speak English today because of compulsory English for hundreds of years.'

Just wanted to establish your view as a comparison to the above?

No not at all and it is a disgrace that we are even discussing this!!!

The Irish language is a key part of our culture, without it what makes us any different to the british???

Not voting fine gael becase of this policy too!!!!
