- University of Limerick News: 'Talking your way to the top' a sociological examination of the role of elite education in the reproduction of privilege in Irish society by Margaret Kennedy examines the role that elite schools play in the reproduction of privilege in Irish society. The author states; "Ireland's elite schools have very strong connections to the top of the social hierarchy with their alumni containing a disproportionate number of individuals in key leadership positions in Irish society. Yet to date, the role these schools play in determining who has access to power in our society has received little attention."?
