The Republic of Ireland's Workplace Relations Commission has decided that an atheist child was discriminated against by his Catholic school when students were rewarded for attending a religious ceremony.
The commission, an independent, quasi-judicial forum, ruled that the Yellow Furze National School in County Meath had discriminated against an atheist student.
Early in the 2019 school year, the students had been promised a homework pass if they took part in the choir during a First Communion ceremony
The boy's mother complained, but the school defended its policy.
