Hi Niall,

Exploring issues such as this through the use of elite female teams is a very worthwhile approach. The performances of the Irish women’s and men’s soccer teams in recent years is a perfect example of this. The current dispute between the ladies football and camogie players, and their governing bodies is something that could be a useful stimulus for debate in a senior class. Discussions around the protests currently ongoing, the reasons for these and the importance of equality between male and female players could allow for very enriching learning experiences.
