This Wicklow cafe are offering the perfect breakfast for LC students today

Fiona Frawley

I don’t think I need to state the obvious here – we all know the morning of your Leaving Cert results isn’t exactly the most enjoyable time of your life.

The Broken Chair in Arklow know this too and don’t worry, they won’t be cautiously approaching you asking “well? Is it good news?” or talking about Síofra down the road with the 8 H1s. No, they’ll be doing exactly what you need them to do which is serving up a delicious pancake stack along with a glass of Prosecco to calm the nerves. This is the kind of emotional support the young adults of Ireland need, people.

If you’ve hit the big 1-8 and are getting your results today, you can reward yourself with pancakes and Prosecco from the Broken Chair for just €10. Honestly, the ideal treat for what can be a stressful morning.

For anyone heading off now to get their results, please remember that no matter what’s on that piece of paper (or computer screen, I don’t fully know how it works these days), everything’s going to be okay. It can seem like the be-all and end-all but it really isn’t, there are multiple paths to whatever you’re hoping to achieve in life. Some of them have extra twists and turns and road signs that you can’t fully read because you did pass Irish in the end, but they’re good craic all the same. It’s all done now and you never have to think about it again (apart from the recurring Leaving Cert dreams every Irish person gets, mine usually come fortnightly).

You’re on your way now to start a new chapter in life, and celebrating that with pancakes and a glass of bubbles is what you deserve! Treat, and I can’t stress this enough, yourself.
