The Mothership: Does religion still have a place in Irish schools?
As Ireland's population becomes pluralist, does a predominantly Catholic education system make sense?
Welcome back to The Mothership; the show that brings the issues that matter most to Irish families, to the table.
On this week's show we’re asking, does religion still have a place in Irish schools?
Roughly 88% of Irish schools are still under the patronage of the Catholic Church — as we become a more pluralist society, does a majority Catholic education system still make sense?
Joining us this week is Alison Moore from Education Equality, Author and screenwriter Caroline Grace-Cassidy and TV and radio presenter Luke O’Faolain.
