Senator Mark Daly:The principal of Lauragh national school organised a public meeting on rural schools in Kerry last night. I thank the Leader for facilitating several debates on this issue. A positive development in this regard is the GAA’s decision to support the issue because it realises its own vested interests are at stake. Rural schools must be maintained if the social and sporting life of communities is to be sustainable. I look forward to further debates in this House on issues relating to rural Ireland. If we do not have viable communities we will not have a rural Ireland in the future.
