The aim of English at second level is to develop students' proficiencyin language and broaden their understanding and appreciation of literature.

In English students get the opportunity to study the works of many great writers. William Shakespeare, John Donne, Emily Dickinson, Charlotte Bronte, Seamus Heaney, Derek Mahon and Eavan Boland are just some of the writers they may study.

A central part of studying English is reading. With the advent of computer games it is worrying to discover that teenagers today are reading less and less. A love of reading is wholeheartedly encouraged at Dominican College. We have and excellent library available to students with reading material for all age groups.

Visits by theatre groups and attendance at staged performances of plays on the Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate syllabi are encouraged.
