730 schools closed today due to Junior Cycle Strike

More than 730 schools are closed today due to teachers striking over the proposed junior cycle reform plan. It’s the second strike day in as many months as both the unions and the government are holding firm on their positions…


The twitter hashtag #JuniorCycleStrike is being used to drum up publicity on social media and here’s some photos of our teachers on the picket lines (in freezing temperatures it should be noted too)…


Although this has nothing to do with leaving cert students, we’re sure there won’t be too many complaints from many students about a day off school (a legitimate, non-mitching one).
