‘Céad Míle Fáilte’ go Roinn na Gaeilge

 

The Irish Department is a vibrant and diverse department which prepares students for external CCEA GSCE, AS and A2 examinations, as well as providing students with positive experiences of using Irish creatively and confidently.

Our aim is to foster a sound knowledge and appreciation of the richness and diversity of the Irish language, to develop a range of life-long skills associated with language-learning and to develop and encourage an awareness in our students of the heritage and culture associated with the Irish language locally, nationally and globally.
