Exemptions from the study of Irish

Aug 28, 2019

The Department has issued Circular 52/2019 on Exemptions from the study of Irish. The purpose of this Circular is to advise recognised Primary Schools1 of the revised arrangements for the exemption of pupils from the study of Irish. It supersedes Circular 12/96 and the 2009 revision of that Circular both of which are hereby withdrawn. The revised arrangements set out in this Circular apply to English-medium Primary Schools2 only. Existing exemptions from the study of Irish granted under Circular 12/96 and held by pupils will continue to apply until the end of their post-primary education.
