Education Minister To Double The No. Of Students Taught Through Irish.

: 30/12/2019 - 15:00

The Education Minister has announced plans to double the number of students taught through Irish.

A new policy announced today will provide a framework for the delivery of education through Irish in schools and early-years settings outside the Gaeltacht.

Joe McHugh says Irish-medium schools play 'a vital role in developing identity and fluency' in the language.

The work will be informed by national and international research into good practice in other jurisdictions, such as Wales and the Canadian province Quebec.
