School prayers a part of education

I refer to Anita Guidera's article regarding an irate dad taking his son out of school over a prayer recital (Irish Independent, January 27).
Ireland has been a Catholic country for centuries. Our education system was built by religious orders and prayer has been part of that education.
For hundreds of years our religion was forced underground, and our forefathers attended Mass on a rock and hedge schools for their education.
