This book adds to the small but growing corpus of literature in the bilingual education field. It is an account of the Bilingual Program of Instruction introduced in selected primary schools in Irish-speaking districts in Ireland between 1904 and 1922. The book discusses the historical context, the nature of the program, the extent to which it was disseminated, and the inadequacies of teacher training for its implementation.
