I’ve not lived in Cork, only Leixlip for seven months, but from what I’ve heard from my classmates the accent is… nearly indecipherable. Not even they could understand what people from Co. Cork were saying. So good luck!
Anonymous asked: I love your blog!I'm a US high school student hoping to apply to University College Dublin in about a year or two and I saw that Irish language is a prerequisite?Does this apply to international students too?And are most signs in English or Irish?
Irish is not compulsory for any Irish university unless it is an Irish speaking one. School level Irish is only needed to apply for UCD if you are an Irish student, foreign students are exempt from this rule. (Unless the course you are interested in is Irish speaking.)
Have a look on the UCD website, all the information you need should be here. I’d also talk to your career advisor in your school, they should be able to inform you a bit more about the application process from the states :)
Don’t worry about the signs, they are all in both languages ;)
