Hundreds of Leaving Cert students collected their results on Friday after a prolonged wait due to new exam timelines arising from Covid-19.

"We’re absolutely thrilled. The students did brilliantly well,” CBS principal Pat Rossiter said.

"There was a hint of relief with the system that was in place this year.”

More than half of the schools students sat one or more of the exams in late summer.

Mr Rossiter paid tribute to Education minister Norma Foley and everyone involved in this year’s exams, saying “just looking at the matrix from the department, it looks very coherent. It’s not like there were two different systems in place here. In general eveyone fulfilled their potential.”

He said students have been put under “unbelievable pressure” to find accommodation this week. 

Colaiste Abbain students were well served by a new education programme called 'Èacht', to improve attainment.

"We now know it works. We are beyond proud that our hard work and commitment has enabled these 6th year students to reach their full potential,” a school spokesperson said.

Our Lady of Lourdes principal Toni Ormond congratulated the Class of 2021 on their Leaving Certificate results. “In line with previous years the results are excellent and a testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment exhibited by the girls and their teachers. You completed your exams after two years in and out of lockdown, that in itself is an achievement. Just remember that there are millions of paths to success and we are very proud of you and your hard work. We wish you all the very best for the future ahead.”

ach their full potential.

Kennedy College principal Michael Weafer said: “Overall, I am pleased to report that Kennedy College students achieved fantastic results. Over the last two years, although interrupted due to school closures, the Leaving Certificate class of 2021 reached and, in many cases, surpassed expectations, excelling in all subject areas.

"Credit also to the committed Kennedy College staff, who supported the students throughout their educational journey in Kennedy College, in particular over the course of a challenging 2020-2021 academic year.”

Students got their results online on Friday from 10 a.m., and in keeping with school traditions, many travelled to see their classmates ahead of going on to third level education.
