A message from the President of the HTAI, Deirdre Mac Mathúna

 

‘ Protect our Past’.

 

We had a very positive meeting with the Minister for Education Joe Mc Hugh and Maureen O’Sullivan T.D. in government buildings on 16th January 2019. It was a great opportunity to impress on the Minister the serious consequences for the future of history in our schools if it continues to be placed at the margins of the curriculum. Mr. Mc Hugh displayed a genuine commitment to the subject and we look forward to further developments on the restoration of history to the core of the New Junior Cycle.
