  • Key characters in King Lear
  • The poetry of Patrick Kavanagh
  • The Cultural Context mode of comparison

Irish (H)

As we approach exam season, this block course will focus on exam questions in order to give students the best head start for their exams. In this course, we will begin highlighting common pitfalls to avoid on the papers. We will provide excellent material on the literary pieces of Paper Two by focusing on the poem’s meter, background and poet’s life. We will complement this with notes on emotions, character interaction always bearing in mind previous exam years. Following on from this, we will look at some more topical oral material for the end of year exams while also revising Sraith Pictiúr. Building on from this, we will look at some more essay material. Finally, we will finish up our block course with some grammar (including the often misunderstood Modh Coinníollach and Tuiseal Ginideach!) in order to promote a self confidence in writing.
