Will the 1916 essay come up?
by Lucie costello Leaving Cert Irish — 11/06/16 5

Since a speech on 1916 came up in the mocks do you think it's still likely to come up as an essay in the leaving cert?

I cant see how they could get away with not putting it up as an essay title!

Could be a looser connection like identity, nationality, the language (Pearse) or talking about modern society in that context (what would the leaders think of ireland 2016.....) so although I can't imagine them ignoring it..... There are lots of options

They are trying to take predictability out of exams, not put it in. So no, it probably wont come up. Look at english for example. Nothing on yeats.
