A report on the need - or not - of Foreign Direct Investment and the ins and outs of employment law didn't cause too many headaches for students of Business in the Leaving Cert at Letterkenny's Coláiste Ailigh.

And taking the exam through Irish at the Gaelcoláiste wasn't a bother either for Naoibh McSharry from Termon, who is hoping to study Commerce at NUI Galway.

"It was a very good paper," said Naoibh. "While the paper was heavy at times, I was able to tackle everything which came up. I was tight for time in the mocks and found time at the end of the real thing to go over the paper again. I hope that's a good thing."

She tackled questions on the Government's affect on the labour force, social responsibility and franchising.

Aodh Mac Giolla Chearra, from Ranafast in the Donegal Gaeltacht, gave his views on that headline 'It's time to stop relying on Foreign Direct Investment and grow our own indigenous businesses instead'. He said: "The questions allowed you to expand different arguments which was great. Previous papers tended to be rather more specific."
