This chapter examines influential anomalies in Irish education that constrained humanities education. It focuses on the language and religion questions. Ireland was a deeply religious country throughout the twentieth century but the colleges of its National University never established a theology or religion department. The official first language of Ireland is Irish but the vast majority of teaching in the Arts and Humanities is in English. These were two of the factors that constrained humanities education throughout the century.
