The Teaching Council of Ireland has indicated that it wants all SCG/OCG Gaeltacht courses for the 2021/22 academic year to revert to the pre-COVID traditional face to face arrangement commencing with the Mid Term break in October. This includes the total immersive experience in the Gaeltacht. Accordingly, Coláiste Gharumna  will provide this course in-person in Lettermore.
