Hi,

we need to move from Barcelona (Spain) to Glanmire (Cork co.) for one year (august to august). We have three children (4,6,7 y.o.) that have some notions of English.

Our question is about Irish. Is it compulsory in every primary schools? We think the use of two foreign languages would difficult the integration of our children in their new school...

Thank you in advance for your responses,

Joan and family
