Children will survive
Sir -- Eilis O'Hanlon's piece (Sunday Independent, May 9, 2010), has tugged rudely on the strings of some of my fondest childhood memories.
What the author fails to recognise in her piece is that 99 per cent of children love these courses. Many want to go back year after year.
The demand and number of courses increases yearly. Most kids love it, they learn a hell of a lot of Irish and the system works.
