This Irish course has been designed by our State Examiner Séadhan De Poire so that students will feel that they have been to the Gaeltacht without leaving the comfort of their home. This course will help students improve both oral fluency and pronunciation. The subject will be turned into a living language and students will gain more confidence in their own ability to converse in Irish.

By the end of the course each student will have detailed individual notes for the Irish oral from a State Examiner. The oral is worth 40 % of the overall result in Irish.

The course will also prepare students for the Aiste [which is worth 17%] by showing them the techniques required to formulate, structure and compose essay on topical and current affairs.
