Every year, Gaelscoileanna Teo. gathers statistics from the Irish-medium schools. These statistics help us to strategically plan for the development of the Irish-medium sector and to cater for its requirements. Receiving these statistics enables us to effectively support Irish-medium schools. There is a list of additional research published on Irish-medium education available here.

Statistics are made available to researchers and members of the public, but under Gaelscoileanna Teo.’s policy, no information is given out in relation to any particular school.
