Primary school sports coaching government funding ends
Unfortunately it seems other important areas of education are suffering from short-term thinking when it comes to funding cuts.

The Department of Education (DE) has confirmed that funding for the schools curriculum sports programme is to end.
The scheme provided primary schools with a coach from either the GAA or Irish Football Association (IFA), employing more than 50 coaches.
The DE said it could not make further funding available due to "pressures on the education budget".
It also said it had approached other executive departments to find money for the programme without success.
The curriculum sports programme was introduced in schools in 2007.
