Dublin Primary Schools Warn Parents They Will No Longer Celebrate Christmas


Two primary schools in Dublin have warned parents they won’t be able to celebrate Christmas if there is a change of patronage.

It comes as one of eight Catholic Primary Schools in the Portmarnock-Malahide-Kinsealy area is to transfer to a non-denominational model.

Two of the schools have written to parents claiming that Christmas, Easter and St. Patrick’s Day would no longer be marked.


One of the schools also told parents that a large number of teachers would consider leaving if there was a change in patronage.

CEO of Educate Together Paul Rowe says their model celebrates the identity of all students.
