Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment
CCEA Curriculum Monitoring Programme 2018-19


This specification is for first teaching from September 2008.

Our GCE Irish specification aims to enable students to:

  • develop their interest in and understanding of the language;
  • communicate with speakers of Irish; and
  • acquire knowledge and skills that will help them progress to further study and/or employment.

Language learning can open up a world of opportunities to students. The GCE specification will help students avail of these opportunities and take their place in a multilingual, global society.
