Our Hamlet resources are on one handy link here.

You might find particularly helpful:-
For the comparative section, here are fifteen video/audio annotations of key moments in The Great Gatsby.

Poetry: here is a podcast on Seamus Heaney's 'Mossbawn - Sunlight'. And another, on Eavan Boland's 'This Moment'. Summary of Boland resources here.

Unseen Poem: Fifteen 5-minute talks on 'The Patterns of Poetry'.

Elsewhere, there's lots of specific good advice on Evelyn O'Connor's site Leaving Cert English, including sections on Paper 1.
