The consultation on the draft specifications for Leaving Certificate Irish L1 and L2 is now open. Feedback and information will be gathered through online surveys, focus groups, bilateral meetings and written submissions. The consultation will remain open until 31 August 2021.

The specification for Leaving Certificate Irish L1 is aimed at native speakers and learners in Gaeltacht schools, and students in the sector that operate through the Irish language (Gaelcholáistí and Aonaid lán-Ghaeilge). In schools that operate as English-medium schools, there will also be the option to provide the L1 specification. 

The specification for Leaving Certificate Irish L2 is aimed at students who use the Irish language as a second language, primarily in schools that operate as English-medium schools.
