On Monday 26th November our local T.D. Charlie McConalogue visited the school and gave a very informative talk to the students from the Politics & Society class, ( CCS is offering the new Politics & Society Leaving Cert Programme. ) on the law-making process. He outlined the different stages a bill goes through in both houses of the Oireachtas until it eventually becomes an Act / Law. He gave the students a very real insight into the process and the obstacles a bill may face in the process. He also talked to the students about Social Contracts and students had the opportunity to put their questions to him.
