Mayo Fianna Fail TD Dara Calleary is calling on the Government to reinstate history as a core subject in the Junior Cert cycle immediately, otherwise he says he risk a significant decline in the number of second-level students across Mayo studying the subject.

A review on the optional nature of history has now been finalised and is currently being considered by the Department of Education.

Deputy Dara Calleary is calling on the Minister for Education Joe McHugh to reinstate history as a core subject for the Junior Cycle, and says it's important for young people to study the subject so they can discern what's real and what isn't in an era of fake news and right-wing rhetoric.
