    Abstract

    In many schools, civic education was regarded as a marginal activity. While there was some curricular space in the junior cycle, there was none at senior cycle. Unlike most other countries, Ireland didn't offer older teenagers an opportunity to study politics or sociology as a distinct Leaving Certificate subject.
