Once in a blue moon. As rare as hen's teeth. A Government success. Each of those three sentences are as unusual and as rare as each other. But the last one seems to be about to take place. The Government has announced that it plans to give each child in the State a second year of free pre-school. It might not sound like earth shattering news but if it does happen then it could be one of the most significant things that this Government has done since it took office. Any money that is given over to education is a good thing but in terms of a child's development pre-school learning is vital and it is estimated that for every 1 Euro spent on pre-school learning that 7 Euro can be reaped in benefit to the child.

Well Worn Arguments

Is there anyone in the country who doesn't have a fixed opinion on the subject of abortion? Now with the publication of the Government's bill to finally try and fix the confusion around the X Case, nearly 2 decades later, it seems like all the same old arguments, pro and con are being trotted out yet again.

However
