The 1971 Radharc documentary about life on Inis Oírr.
“Adults, who have never attended secondary school, feel they have nothing to offer the young. This is not true. You have a knowledge that no school can provide – the education of life’s experiences here on the island. That is the real education – education that comes from the heart. You give that education through being with them and through the normal chores of the day. This education of experience is passed on unknown – just as important as schooling. I believe, it is important that those attending secondary school be treated as if always at home. They need to know that the family given experience is better than any other.”
