Saturday 14 October 1922

“The usual quarterly meeting was held in the School of Art on Saturday….The irregular attendance in the schools was severely commented upon, and after a lengthy discussion the following resolution was unanimously adopted:-

“That we, the Cork City Branch of the I.N.T.O [Irish National Teachers Organisation], request the Minister for Home Affairs to sanction provisionally, with a view to subsequent legislation on similar lines, the Irish Education Act (Compulsory Attendance) as amended by the Cork City Sinn Fein Executive, and worked with such satisfactory results in the Cork City Parliamentary Area during the past school year. That copies of this resolution, accompanied by a copy of the amended Act be sent to the local T.D.’s our General Secretary, and to the Chairman of the Labour Party in the Dail for the purpose of giving expression to the terms of the resolution.”
