Just want to share a few tips with you for the LC oral exams!

Start your Summer with a bit of Gaeilge?

We have had dozens of calls these past few months asking about our 5th year oral Irish programme for Term 2. We only run them Sept to Dec every year.

With 40% of the LC Irish exam now based on the Irish oral exam so many of ye now realise the importance of spending your time wisely to ensure that this area is perfected in every possible way.
