Suggested English Essay Titles for the 2021 Leaving Cert

So on the Covid thread, @LondonJack just suggested ‘Why is Michael O Leary more important than my education?’ as a suggested option for the English essay in this year’s Leaving Cert*. I think he’s on to something here so started a thread.

My initial suggestion would be:

‘Norma Foley - failure, waffler, gee-bag? Discuss!’

Anyone with any suggestions? Marks for humour!

*Disclaimer: the Leaving Cert may or may not happen…or maybe just for three days per week in June, which seems fair!

“Why am I doing this exam”

I reckon you’d get leaving certs far more capable of a decent speech than the shite we’ve heard from our politicians this year so far and last.

I wouldn’t fancy doing the Leaving nowadays. God love them.

‘Cancel culture and online snowflakes… the suggestion that some ‘woken’ people are constantly offended’. Real or imagined?
