Greater Dublin Area (GDA) for Leaving Cert Geography

Tip: I found it extremely beneficial to know this chapter inside out and back to front. There is more to write about the GDA in comparison with the West of Ireland, and the questions are often easier to get big marks in. There’s a good bit in this chapter, but much of it is common sense or things you’d hear about on the news. Be specific; learn exact figures regarding population, average temperatures etc. This is a critical piece of advice across the entire geography course, but particularly in the Regional section.

Past students don't often come back and say that the notes they got from us were good or helpful - they do something else instead. Year after year, the day that results come out, unprompted, they come back and say the same thing over and over: You saved my life. I owe you my life. You guys are life-savers. It's ironic, given many of our contributors are doctors! But hey, we're happy if you're happy. We've taken the long cut to build something very special. We love the community that we've built and warmly welcome you as you join us.
