Stephen Byrne’s new documentary ‘Leaving Again’ resonated with a lot of viewers as it aired on RTÉ One this evening.

Last year, the RTÉ presenter did the unthinkable and decided to return to school to resit his Leaving Certificate.

The documentary followed Stephen’s personal journey as he walked down memory lane, and the programme has sparked a huge conversation online.

In the doc, Stephen highlighted how the pressure of the Leaving Cert can seriously affect your mental health – something a lot of people can relate to.

Viewers are now sharing their personal stories online, and pointing out why the system needs to change.
