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.
Feedback and information will be gathered through an online survey, focus groups, bi-lateral meetings with stakeholders and written submissions.
The consultation will remain open until 30 November 2021.
