Junior Certificate Irish Grinds

Irish Grinds

At Nenagh Tutorial, we offer Junior Certificate Irish Grinds for 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students in the junior cert cycle. Our teachers break down the Irish subject into its fundamentals, so the student will understand the subject. We focus on the aspects of Irish where the student needs help.

Our Irish grinds can be delivered person to person at our school in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary or delivered via a Zoom or Teams video call.

If the student chooses the person to person Irish grind, he/she is required to follow the latest Covid – 19 restrictions.

  • Students must sanitise hands upon entry to the room.
  • Face coverings will be in line with guidelines set out by the Department of Education and Science.

Cost of the Irish grinds are €45 for a 1 hour grind.

The student is required to bring their text books and a refill pad with them to the grind.

Irish Curriculum

For Irish (Gaeilge), subject content is presented at Ordinary and Higher levels.

Junior Cycle Irish builds upon the language developed during primary education. The learner’s vocabulary is both reinforced and enriched at this stage and the language skills (listening, speaking, reading, spoken interaction and writing) are further developed. Emphasis is placed on promoting and developing awareness: language awareness, cultural awareness as well as student self-awareness as a language learner.

There are currently two Irish syllabuses at junior cycle.

In Irish-medium schools, Irish is the working language of the school and Irish L1 is taught as a subject. In English-medium schools, English is the working language of the school and Irish L2 is taught as a subject.
