How is the quality of education in your school? American schools are big on sports. Are Irish schools? What classes do you have?
Do you get all that great Irish literature--or just the watered down Irish literature the American schools get?

I was in America for a year and played on the varsity soccer team. As far as the education goes I thought it was a piece of cake. Yea Irish schools are pretty big on sports but we don't have the pep rallies or anything gay like that. My classes are Business, Art, Geography,Irish,English,Maths etc.....

Ah, you caught on to the stupid pep rally thing in US. What do you find fundamentally different between US and Ireland since you've lived in both places.

Does everyone have to memorize Yeats' "The Second Coming"?

How do the textbooks portray Michael Collins, De Valera, Wolfe Tone, etc.? Are they idolized at all and spoken of in a reverent tone?

Are you from Cork? If so, do you think Cork will ever catch up with Dublin or will it always be destined to play second fiddle to the capital?

(Just kidding with the second question but answer the first question at least)

When I was at school (in the 80's), yes, or at least be able to quote from it (and other Yeats poems)

I'm not sure about today, I'll let Mullen4prez answer it.

I love you after saying that comment

The religious people in America and weirdos. You have the mourmans (sp?) I found their beliefs to be very stange. The food is different. Tacobell is the best thing in America. Education is harder in Ireland. Hope I answered your question
