Enrolling now for Leaving Cert 2021
This is a one-year part-time course designed for students who wish to gain entry to Teacher Training College and require a H4 (60-69%) or above in Higher Level Irish in the Leaving Certificate.

Below you can see feedback from previous students:
“I attended your Higher Level Irish grinds for the Leaving Certificate last year. I am delighted to say I passed the exams and got a B2. Furthermore, I have been accepted into Hibernia College and I am pursuing my dream of becoming a primary school teacher. I would like to say a huge thank you for all your support, encouragement and advice throughout the course which has helped me achieve this goal. I am truly thankful to both you and your colleague for the extra time you both gave me throughout the year.”
Ailish McKenna 2016/17
“I got a B in Ordinary Level Irish in my Leaving Cert in 2008. So it’s safe to say when I started with Rónán in September last year I had very little confidence in my ability. After a few months of hard work and Rónán’s encouragement and support everything turned around. I’m now in Hibernia and I have Rónán to thank for that.”
Stephen Flood 2014/15
“Thank you so much for all of your support. I got a B2 and I couldn’t be happier.”
