How to revive the Irish Language in Schools

A meeting was held in the School of Art, Cork, the Chairman (Mr. T. Jones) delivered the following address: ‘You have all seen the reports of the Teachers’ Congress and how the Irish language is to be revived; but how can this be done, when less than 70 per cent of the scholars [pupils] only attend school, and when those who do attend finish at such an early age.

Successful efforts have been made in many parishes to improve school attendance, but the revival of the national language is surely worthy of a big national effort towards compulsory attendance at school.

Again, there must be no doubt about the equipment of schools; there must be books, charts and maps and the schools must be heated, cleaned, furnished and maintained on a basis – at least equal to those under the various Technical Committees.  

The medical inspection of school children would prevent the schools being closed often in epidemics of sickness; closings are not at all so general where there is systematic medical inspection to secure timely attention and isolation…’
