The recent 'Nearest School' rule that will compel the children - who were, up to now, entitled to receive school bus transport to their own central parish school - to attend the national school that is nearest to them, is the final nail in the coffin of rural Ireland.

This affects many rural national schools all around Ireland, but here, in Co Leitrim, we have an example of it at its worst.

Gortlettera is a very big, circular, rural parish in the southern end of Co Leitrim.
