Gallery Question Resource for Leaving Cert

Harry Clarke Marginalia
An Online Exhibition

Download PDF resource here
Download PDF resource in Irish here

This resource is designed for the Leaving Certificate art history and appreciation exam, Section III (Appreciation of Art). It focuses on the ‘gallery question’ where students are asked about an exhibition they have visited.

It is based on the online exhibition Harry Clarke Marginalia, but its structure and focus could be applied to other exhibitions you have visited, virtually or in person at a gallery, museum or other heritage centre. 

The resource aims to help students, but when approaching a question on the exam paper, it is important to follow the advice and guidance of your art teacher. The marking schemes and past exam papers are available at under ‘Exam Material Archive’. This provides information on what the examiners tend to look for in completed exam papers. 


We are keen to support teachers and students, if you have a specific question about an exhibition please feel free to contact us.
