14 fears anyone who did the Irish oral will relate to

Oh, the flashbacks!

THIS WEEK, LEAVING Cert students across the country are gearing up for their Irish Oral tests.

You’re already getting flashbacks to these exact Irish Oral nightmares, aren’t you?

1. There was the fear that you might accidentally reveal hidden truths about yourself

2. Or ask your examiner something inappropriate out of sheer panic

3. Having to tell straight up lies because you couldn’t think of anything else to say

4. Swearing by accident, then not being able to stop swearing

5. Or mixing up the worst words possible

‘Striapach’ =/= ‘straidhpeach’.

6. Speaking Spanish/French/German instead of Irish

7. Saying ‘agus’ when you really had nothing more to add, and trailing off awkwardly

8. Accidentally badmouthing yourself or somebody else thanks to your poor language skills

9. Accidentally incriminating yourself or someone else thanks to your poor language skills

10. Literally messing with the rules of time

11. Not getting your favourite sraith pictiúr and freaking out
