Parents Guide to RSE (Relationships and Sexuality Education) in Schools

In January 1995 , the Department of Education and Science circulated notices to Post Primary schools instructing them to begin teaching 'Relationships and Sexuality Education' (RSE) to children as part of the SPHE curriculum (Social, Personal and Health Education) . In 1999 , RSE became a mandatory part of Primary School curriculum . The type of RSE Lessons taught to children are currently a matter for individual schools and teachers . At present , School policy on RSE must include a provision to notify parents about RSE lessons and give them the option to withdraw their child from a lesson

From an Irish ex pat - thoughts on Brexit and BBC bias

Letter to Editor 31/01/2020 Hello good people. I am a Brit ex pat, presently resident in Brasil, where sadly Guinness is hard to come by. (hee hee) Born of Ulsterman Father and Dublin born Mother. Mixed religion. Aged 63 I witnessed many of the 'Troubles' in the North. I used to spend my school summer holidays on my Uncles farm in County Down. How times have changed. I too complained to the BBC about its' coverage of Brexit and its' so,so,so PRO remain stance. So much did I complain, I am now banned from complaining? The main reason the BBC banned me was

Events in France - a French Perspective

Events in France - a French Perspective

Letter to Editor 03/12/2018 As a French native living in Ireland for twelve years, I feel the information given to Irish people about the situation in France is incorrect, or biased. The root cause of the problems as stated in many Irish papers come from Macron’s politics and rises in petrol tax. But if it were only that, the French would cope with it.

What the governments did to the citizens is the

Abortion : TDs Refuse Pain Relief for babies in late term abortions

Letter to Editor 02/12/2018 I feel disgusted and dismayed that our TD's rejected the few humane amendments that were put forward last week during the debates on the 'Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy 2018'. The mask has indeed slipped off to reveal one of the most barbaric abortion regimes in the world. Mattie McGrath TD asserted that we were 'LIED' to by the Health minister (Mr. Harris) as his promises did not come to fruition. TD Danny Healy-Rae said, 'We are speaking....about a matter of life and death and he (Mr. Harris) is laughing at us..and grinning'. He was not alone. Pro-abortion TD's sneered
