ASTI members on the picket line at Gael Cholaiste Cill Dara, Naas
Schools are over Kildare and Ireland are closed today as ASTI members strike over pay parity.
Today is the first of seven planned days of industrial action between now and December.
The president of the Association of Secondary Teachers of Ireland, Ed Byrne, is not ruling out more strike days after the current schedule, if the dispute is not resolved.
