“Tír gan Teanga, Tír gan Anam” – Pádraig Mac Piarais
Our school strives to focus on students’ positive engagement with the Irish language through the study of literature, the spoken language and grammar. Gaeilge is one of the core subjects and over the 6 years it gives students an opportunity to develop new language skills and a more in depth knowledge into their culture and heritage.
Our school takes pride in our links with the Gaeltacht which opens up the opportunity for scholarships and work for students.
The Irish award at Junior and Senior Cycle encourages students to use Gaeilge both in and outside the classroom.
The Junior Cycle curriculum sees the student take charge of their own learning. Students will engage with the Irish language and develop the ability to structure their own learning. This new curriculum encourages the students to promote their language and culture in new and interactive ways. Junior Cycle Gaeilge allows students to put their own personality into their learning and helps them become independent learners. More information is available if you click the link below.
