RTE are reporting today that Mayo native, Enoch Burke has arrived at Wilson's Hospital School in Multyfarnmham, Co Westmeath, for a second day, following the Christmas break.

Mr Burke was jailed in early September after breaching an order granted to the school by the High Court, directing him to stay away from the school in which he teaches.

After spending 108 days in prison, he walked free from Mountjoy prison before Christmas after his release was ordered by the High Court.

Mr Burke has been suspended on full pay by the school as part of a disciplinary process, following a row over a request from a student to be addressed by a new name and for "they/them" pronouns to be used.

The court granted the injunctions after Mr Burke continued to attend the school following his suspension.
