Sounds similar to how it's done in the German oral - there are 5 picture sequences for that which are just laid out face down on the table and you pick one at random

Does anyone know where I could get an mp3 download of the Poems to listen for the oral?

Have you the book Fiúntas? There is a CD with that. The poems are done on it. Also Líofa (which is like 20 euro :/) has a CD and its basically the poems and other oral work...

Can anyone doing higher level Irish please clarify this for me because I'm an external student and the chap giving me grinds hasn't a clue! On Paper 2 for the poems and pros - i know there are two questions but will one be specific and one be on any poem/pros we've studied?

This makes me mad. Don't go to grinds if they're crap, enough of great teachers out there. Spicifically what do you need to know, I can hopefully help.

ah listen it was my own fault I made a last minute decision to repeat the Irish and he was all I could afford, I'm teaching him more than he's teachin me the poor divil! I'm just worried that I haven't studied the poems etc. properly so here's what I'm looking for - the question on prose and the poems - we get a choice of two questions so will one question be on a specific poem/pros and the other a question on a poem or pros of our choice OR are both questions going to be on specific poems/pros? Did that even make sense? am googly eyed here!

Yes, but it's two different courses, the set course (that everyone does) and the optional course (that has the open question) afaik.

of you did the poems like geibheann , colscradh etc and the prose oisin, dis,etc you answer question a ! The b question is for those people who have selected their own stories and poetry to study ! If you answer question b and lets say right about geibheann and colscaradh has come up on part A you get zero marks !

Oh I forgot about the environment, I'm doing that too! Our teacher told us to do an essay on Slád ar an mbóthar a few weeks ago but I didn't do it because I thought it wouldn't come up. Should I prepare it?

Im really happy the course change
At first I was really worried about the 40% for the oral but we've really been practising it all year and our teacher qaraunteed us we all have a high standard of irish, coming from a gaelteacht-ish area.
I hated the sraith pictuiri at first but aftr a whike you just have to get over them. You dont need to learn every single thing in each picture, its not like there gonna dock you marks everytime you miss something. You just have to make it natural. i.e - make it up as you go along.
Really happy history isnt on the paper anymore, that was meant to be a bitch :/
And way less poems and stories I think, is that right?
Well anyways Im delighted it changed!
