Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Junior Cycle - Gaeilge

Subject Group: Humanities
These subjects explore the ways in which humans live and communicate in the world. Human life is examined by looking at our past, our present and into our future. These subjects help people to express themselves clearly and develop their reasoning ability.

Brief Description:

The aim of Junior Certificate Irish is to improve your ability to communicate through Irish. You will focus on improving your language skills through concentrating on four areas; your spoken language through speaking; your listening skills through listening to others, CDs and tapes; your written skills through writing in Irish, and your reading skills through reading passages, poems and stories written in Irish.


How will Gaeilge be useful to me?

You will have the advantage of being bilingual. Irish is one of our official languages as well as being an official language of the European Union. Careers in which you may develop and use your Irish language skills include; teaching, working as civil servants, careers in business, law, and communication, and translation services.

Note: The Junior Cycle is changing, and new/revised JCSA curricula are being introduced on a phased basis from September 2014. English is first new programme to be introduced, followed by Science, Irish and Business Studies in 2015.


The New Irish specification for Junior Cycle will be taken by first year students from September 2015. 

Details of developments with the new programme are made available here
