About the Author

Yvonne is a primary teacher who is passionate about the teaching of the Irish language. She has been teaching in Co. Tipperary for 15 years. Having tried various Irish programmes in her school, she found she was still sourcing material to plan and teach Irish lessons on a weekly basis. Yvonne felt that there was no resource in the market with all the vocabulary and grammar in one place for teachers to reference when delivering the Primary Language Curriculum.

During lockdown, Yvonne compiled all the vocabulary associated with the 10 themes in the Irish Curriculum along with all the grammar points teachers need to know to support their students. She continued collating comprehension, presentation and writing guides for teaching Irish. Yvonne planned Ar Aghaidh Leat to support a classroom of students with varied levels of Irish, thus helping teachers to differentiate lessons for varying student abilities.
