In the Past decade, Irelands largely informal system of education has been transformed by a number of legislative measures, which have effected a major transfer of control from the churches to the State. All this has occurred against the backof a rapidly increasing and secularizing society. This is the context in which the current public discourse on the role of the Catholic Church in education is taking place.

The proceedings of this conference held in February 2005 bring together some of the key thinkers in the Catholic and Irish educational world. In addition to the conference papers, a seminal paper by Dr J. Dunne from a 1992 conference on School and Society and a Theological Reflection on the Catholic School in Ireland by Dr A. McGrady are added to the conference papers. It is therefore a thought-provoking book for anyone interested in engaging in this important question for the Church in Ireland and society.
