Galway Bay fm newsroom – A principal in Athenry says local schools are seeing an upwards trend in experienced teachers moving West.

Nationally, principals are reporting a teacher shortage ahead of the academic year, with a lack of housing and the cost of living being blamed.

Speaking to Galway Talks, Daniel says schools here are generally not struggling to hire experienced teachers.
