It is five years since Brian Mooney was scouted by Education Matters for the role of Editor of Ireland’s Yearbook of Education. Eventually – despite an already busy schedule, Brian generously accepted the invitation. During the years since then, he has remarkably increased the visibility and prestige of the Yearbook. His energy and enthusiasm, as well as his expert knowledge of the Irish education system, are abundantly recognised and appreciated by all those involved each year in the creation of this progressively prominent publication.
Speaking at a meeting of the editorial board in May 2019, Brian described Ireland’s Yearbook of Education as “an amazing resource”. He said it was “his immense privilege” to work with members of the editorial board to produce this valuable publication which is a think-tank, a catalyst for change, a reference work, and a permanent historical record of the evolution of education in Ireland.
