With eleven years’ teaching experience, including being a senior member of the teaching staff in Coláiste Árainn Mhóir Donegal, Maitiú is a dynamic and talented teacher who makes every effort to make Irish accessible for all of his students.

Maitiú has vast experience of teaching Leaving Certificate Irish both to 5th and 6th year students, as well as to adults pursuing a career as Primary School Teachers and is able to provide support and cater for students of all ability levels and age groups. His students achieve exceptional results and most develop a true ‘grá’ for the language due to his obvious love for the subject.

A huge thanks to Ashfield College and Matt Whelan for getting  me through the exam, and reviving my love of Irish.

Matt is a wonderful teacher whose passion for the Irish language is evident. His exam focus and positivity somehow manages to make the exam less daunting. He creates an excellent classroom atmosphere and is incredibly encouraging.
