Mistakes of history

 

Sir, – As an Irishman working in UK, I feel that allowing optional status for Junior Cycle history is a mistake. The study of history contributes to the Irish sense of self, helping to contextualise everything that makes us Irish.

Let’s not make the same mistakes as countries such as the UK. We know where that has led. – Yours, etc,
