In keeping with the ethos of Edmund Rice College the Irish Department is Caring and vibrant reflecting the increasing popularity of our language and culture nationwide. All our students have the opportunity to learn Irish from first to third year after which they can choose to study the language as a GCSE subject in fourth and fifth year. Pupils can also continue Irish at A-Level.


An Ghaeltacht

Every student has the opportunity to attend Summer or Easter courses in the Donegal Gaeltacht. Many boys attended courses in the Gaeltacht last Summer. Cúrsaí Gaeltachta afford the studentss a fantastic opportunity to learn our language in beautiful relaxed surroundings while at the same time they enjoy themselves and meet many new friends.


These include Gael-Linn quizzes, Abair public speaking, trips, Feis Béal Feirste, poster/essay competitions, Seachtain na Gaeilge agus Bronnadh Fáinní.
