Since 2012, St. Michael's College Junior School has offered a Rang Lan Ghaeilge in the Sixth Class. This provision allows boys to learn all subjects (apart from English) through Irish. In addition to the cultural benefits, as 50% of the Leaving Cert Irish exam will be based on oral and aural work, it is advantageous for pupils to avail of this opportunity before Secondary School. Increasing fluency in a second language also greatly enhances the study of a third language at second level and beyond.
