Primary schools across the country are struggling and parents forced to donate millions every year to cover essential costs

The Catholic Primary Schools Management Association, which is headquartered in Maynooth,  says the capitation grants only cover half the day to day costs.

It says parents are forced to donate up to 46 million a year to cover the shortfall.
