  • Bean Uí Ridlí  (Head of Department) 

The Irish Department supports the whole curriculum, whilst providing opportunities for Irish as a subject in its own right. We teach in a meaningful context, providing pupils with positive experiences of using Irish creatively and with confidence.

The main aims of the Department are to:

  • foster knowledge and appreciation of the Irish language as a native language;
  • create a positive atmosphere which allows pupils to develop competence in spoken and written Irish;
  • encourage pupils to develop personal qualities, such as self-confidence, independence and effective communication;
  • develop pupils’ ability to communicate and deal with information through the medium of Irish;
  • enhance pupils’ learning by incorporating CDT into teaching.
  • enable pupils to develop transferable communication skills.
