The purpose of this Circular is to advise Post-Primary Schools of the revised arrangements for the exemption of students from the study of Irish. It supersedes Circular M10/94 and the 2008 revision of that Circular both of which are hereby withdrawn. The revised arrangements set out in this Circular apply to English-medium Post-primary Schools only. Existing exemptions from the study of Irish granted under Circulars 12/96 and M10/94 and held by students will continue to apply until the end of their post-primary education.
