Nine years after broadcaster Stephen Byrne sat his Leaving Cert, he decided to do the unthinkable and sit the exam all over again!
In this personal and honest one-hour documentary, 27-year-old Byrne returns to school to attempt the same seven subjects he studied the first time around.
He describes his 2009 Leaving Cert year as one of the worst year’ of his life. He had moved school, was coming to terms with his sexuality…
…Mix that with a normal helping of teenage angst and you’ve got a recipe for Leaving Cert disaster…
‘Leaving Again’ on RTÉ One at 10.15pm.
