INTO 150: INTO to celebrate 150 years (1868-2018)


All units of the INTO invited to participate in the commemoration of our history and in analysis of priorities for the years ahead, as part of ‘INTO 150’.

Founded in 1868 while Ireland was still a colony and in the shadow of the famine years, the INTO is among the country’s longest-established unions and by far the oldest and largest teachers’ union on the island.

Later this year a history of the INTO will be published, telling the story of the struggle for teachers’ rights along with key contests involving powerful interest groups in Church and State.

In addition to the history book, other events and commemorations at the planning stage will be launched later this year. Any member who wishes to contribute ideas towards ‘INTO 150’ events is welcome to email Head Office at
