Way more expensive than other fee-paying schools because the State doesn't pay its teachers. Why not? I assume because they are not teaching the Leaving Cert.

How much would you pay to get your child out of the Leaving? The IB is more demanding intellectually but the students won't be having nightmares about the exams for the rest of their lives :roll:

However Clongowes is a boarding school.

That's a big difference.

Clongowes is such excellent value, it could solve our housing problem. It would be cheaper to pay for 25 years of boarding at Clongowes than to construct a single unit of affordable housing in Dublin. And the residents will be fed and educated XX

Party on dude!

We are wealthier than during the boom, says Central Bank
Central Bank data shows net worth of State households hit record figure of €757bn

Quote:
Irish households are, on paper at least, more than 75 per cent wealthier than they were at the low point of recession.
According to Central Bank’s latest quarterly financial accounts, the net worth of Irish households hit a record €757 billion in the second quarter of this year, eclipsing the boomtime pre-crash peak of €719 billion reached in the second quarter of 2007.

Pinsters know that "below the poverty line" does not mean "poor". It means "at risk of poverty" which means "counted by the poverty industry". Of course, property has a great deal to do with this:
Quote:
An analysis of consistent poverty rates by tenure status shows that the rate for those living in ‘owned’ dwellings was 3.5% compared with 10.6% for those renting at the market rate and 16.6% for those paying less than the market rate or ‘rent free’
Cause or effect? Some might say getting out of social housing is the best cure for "consistent poverty" but I predict that many more people will live in social housing in the future.
Quote:
At an overall level in 2017, the prevalence of nine of the eleven types of deprivation declined when compared to 2016. The most common types of deprivation experienced were an inability to afford to replace worn out furniture (20.4%), inability to afford to have family or friends for a drink or meal once a month (13.9%) and inability to afford a morning, afternoon or evening out in the last fortnight(13.2%).

Astonishingly, I realise that I grew up in a family that was "at risk of poverty" - we had worn-out furniture a meal out was a rare luxury and we rarely had visitors for dinner. In fact, I would suggest that around 95% of Irish people in the 1960s were "at risk of poverty". Of course, many of those were really poor and we tried to help them out. Nowadays, poverty is another word for "inequality".

Why rely on the media? Here's the full study: https://cso.ie/en/releasesandpublicatio ... ssilc2017/
