Ok- this has been updated.

I've added some useful LC threads along with all the links people have suggested. I've deleted any previous posts as the links in them have been added to the OP- cheers everyone who submitted some. The OP should be a bit more visually appealing now too.

If you see any useful links to other websites or useful LC threads link them here and I'll add them to the OP. Thanks in advance.

http://motivatednotes.com it's pretty empty at the moment (apart from the construction studies section) but it should fill up soon enough as more and more people submit their notes! Our school business website got recommended here too so take a look at it for information on business/economics http://sgcbusiness.com/

mocks.ie

http://www.mocks.ie
The site has a lot useful info ... I've just been looking through the past exam breakdown - very interesting.

Looks like you can take any past exam paper and get it corrected and get feedback on your answers. From reading the site, it looks like you can do random papers or just cover topics.

Might be worth adding it to the links above.

A shameless self-plug! I set up this site to help out students of Leaving Cert Japanese, especially those without a teacher. I still have to build up the lessons and resources but it's getting there. If any one's interested:
