"Are you a mature student that wants to do Primary Teaching and you don't have the required Irish H4/C3 grade in the Leaving Certificate?

If so, this Irish class is for you. Universities such as Mary Immaculate College, Hibernia College, St. Patrick's College and Marino Institute of Education require a H4 in Irish for entry onto the Professional Masters of Education (PME) course. 

"This Irish class contains students that have completed the Leaving Certificate and want to now go back and do the PME. Most students feel that they are at a basic level upon entry to the class and throughout the intensive program from September to June they improve immeasurably.

The class takes place each Wednesday evening between 6.05 and 7.20. The class will start in the first week in September of 2019 and will finish in the last week in May of 2020. Each student will be given all materials required to complete the Leaving Certificate Irish Higher Level paper.

All aspects of the Leaving Certificate Irish course will be covered, including: Irish Oral - fáiltiú (welcome), dánta (poetry), sraith pictiúr (picture sequences) and comhrá (conversation). Irish Paper 1: Cluastuiscint (listening) and Aiste (essay). Paper 2: Léamhthuiscintí (reading comprehensions), Prós (prose), Filíocht (poetry) and Litríocht Bhreise 'An Triail' - (extra literature - 'An Triail')."
