PARENTS ARE CHOOSING psychologists in order to get their children exemptions from learning Irish in schools, the Irish Daily Mail reported this morning.

This is despite allowing them to be enrolled in foreign language classes such as French or German.

Inspectors found that special education needs are “frequently used as grounds for exemption”.

Today, we’re asking you: Should Irish be compulsory in schools?


Poll Results:

Yes (10288)
