Irish was no more irrelevant than English, Maths, History, Geography, Art or any other subject you care to mention. How many of us are using calculus every day?
My point is that the real problem was not with the education system (although it could have been better) but rather with the support for the language in broader society.
We relied on the education system alone to revive the language when we should have supported it in every area of government. That way the language would have been relevant after school.
