    That's what I call proper order. You know the rules so get into line if you want your child to go to a catholic school.

    Unfortunately, as explained in the article, it is not only Catholic Schools, but Protestant schools and even Jewish schools as well.
    And other types of schools pretty much do not exist. And in some areas, Catholic schools are the only schools.
    Interesting question, where do you send your children if you do not want them indoctrinated?

    I raise mine the proper way. Baptised , holy communion , confirmation , mass every sunday. You know the usual way.
    They can make their own choices about religion when they are 16 and until then thats the way it is.
    This is catholic Ireland right...........

    They can make their own choices about religion when they are 16.” When they have been well and truly indoctrinated.
    Unfortunately this is Catholic Ireland. But, it is supposed to be a Democratic Republic, not a Theocracy.

    Jeeze . If you don't like this country go somewhere else.
    This is Ireland . The land of green fields the catholic church drunken husbands leprachauns and the good old potato.
    That's what brings the yanks over and keeps us a float.

    Just about sums up the Old Ireland attitude in a nutshell.

    Not any longer, it is multicultural, multi faith republic. Catholic church is where it deserves to be, separated completely from state. I'm a Jedi Knight, no harm in that.

    Proper way? That's surprisingly judgemental of you zilch. There's an ever growing amount of very educated people who would consider forcing a religious upbringing on a child as child abuse. Time to pull your head into the 21st century maybe?

    I like this country fine, it's the assholes in it that I don't like.
    You seem to be suffering from a delusion where anyone that doesn't share your beliefs is a coward that will run away

    I'll stay here and make the church run. Thanks

    Educated people. Don't make me laugh. All the educated Irish people have left and i tell you why.
    This country sold itself out to Europe. They let the wheel turn too fast and lots of bit fell off in the process.
    The day will come when the Irish man will be in the minority in his own country.
    And Feck me what about golf clubs. They even have days when men are not allowed to play . Ladies day i think they call it.

    I tell ya that wouldn't happen in good old Ireland.
    Bring back the good old days when there was a bit of disapline in the place.
    When the guard could kick ur hole and put manners on ya.
