Junior & Leaving Certificate Irish Grinds in Clonmel

We offer an intensive programme covering all aspects of the Junior & Leaving Certificate Irish paper suited to those willing to give 100% commitment. However, grinds do not replace or interfere with regular school work. They are intended to supplement and enhance school learning. All classes will be streamed according to ability. Irish grinds enable students to develop a keen understanding of the syllabus and develop their written and oral skills. Grinds will also be of benefit to students who have fallen behind due to illness or absenteeism and who wish to return to their previous standard.

We are currently offering Irish grinds on Saturday mornings to Junior & Leaving Certificate students. See Timetable for more details!
