Letters: When did schools start delegating STEM Education to Trade Unions and Football Clubs

STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) was traditionally the Job of Schools and their Teachers to impart such Education to Children . Now it appears , some Schools are using the services of Trade Unions and Football Clubs . A number of Schools in Clondalkin and Tallaght have signed up to a Unite Trade Union initiative in conjunction with Shamrock Rovers whereby activists from Unite will educate children on these subjects using their own methods . The launch of the programme took place on Tuesday with Schools such as St. Thomas’s NS in Tallaght , St. Bernadette’s NS in Clondalkin and Divine Mercy Balgaddy already

Letters : New Fine Gael Bill to ditch Men from directorship roles

A new Fine Gael Bill entitled the "corporate governance bill 2021" will force Companies to select directors based on their gender rather than the person's skills , abilities , merits and qualifications . Under the new Bill , 40% of people recruited for Directorships must be selected on the basis that they are female even if others so happen to be more qualified for the role . Announcing her Bill on social media , Fine Gael TD Emer Hiiggins (Dublin Mid West) says : Take a second to imagine a boardroom today in Ireland . Chances are you've thought of a lot of Men sitting around a table

Should Wealthy areas of Dublin take their fair share of refugees and asylum seekers

With the recent announcement by Government that it will take in hundreds of Afghan migrants under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme , cancel deportation orders on failed Afghan Asylum Seekers here and prioritise family reunification and Visas for Afghans , I ask the question , is it only fair that wealthy areas of Dublin take in their fair share .
