Mountmellick Community School

Our Language is an important part of our cultural heritage as Irish people, and thus an important element in the educational system. Many careers require a pass in Irish for instance, nursing in Ireland, careers in the Civil Service or Guard . Entry to N.U.I. is also dependent on passing Irish at Leaving Certificate level. Honours Irish is a compulsory requirement for entry to National teaching, and a great advantage when applying for any Government posts.
