Some 2,573 students across Limerick city and county received their Leaving Certificate results from 9am, with others living abroad able to receive their results online from 12 noon.

“I am delighted with the results this morning, I am delighted for all our students. They can be very proud of their achievement. I would also like to congratulate their teachers and parents who have supported them over the past 5 or 6 years. I wish them all well on Monday when the CAO offers are made and of course in their futures. They are terrific young men.” expressed David.




Included in the group receiving results were the Leaving Cert Applied class.

David continued to say “I particularly congratulate our LCA students on fantastic results. They have really contributed to the programme and to our school.”

Statistics released by the State Examinations Commission (SEC) show that 58,466 students sat the Leaving Certificate examination this year, up almost 1% on last year (57,931 students).

Of the 58,466 candidates who sat Leaving Certificate examinations this year, 55,708 candidates followed the Leaving Certificate (established) programme, including 14,637 (26%) who followed the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme. A further 2,758 (4.7%) candidates followed the Leaving Certificate Applied Programme.







“Unfortunately, not everyone gets the result which they wanted. What I would say to those that are disappointed with their results or who do not get what they anticipate is ensure that you view your exam scripts and if necessary get your examination papers rechecked. Even if you do not get the points for the course you wish to study it is not the end of the world. There are always ways and means of getting to where you want to be in the future.” says Fine Gael Seanad Spokesperson on Education & Skills and Senator for Limerick City, Maria Byrne.

The CAO round two offers will be issued on August 21 and will give students a second chance to decide what route they wish to take in the future.
