Norma Foley Facing Opposition From Within Her Own Party Over This Year's Leaving Cert

Last night's Fianna Fáil parliamentary party meeting heard calls for this summer's Leaving Cert to be scrapped.

Some TDs and Senators argued the exams should be replaced with predictive grades once again.
Schools are closed for the rest of the month, but Education Minister and Fianna Fáil TD Norma Foley says the written Leaving Cert will go ahead in June.
However some party members have argued against that approach last night - and say students need a decision now.
