Another unusual feature is the medium of instruction and conversation in the school—Irish, an Indo-European language as distant from English as Lithuanian. Maths, physics, film studies, all subjects are taught in Irish; when a class debates the 19th century, pupils talk not of independence but of neamhspleáchas, not of laws but of reachtaíocht.

While small and under equipped schools close, Irish-language ones stay open because of a legal right.
