This has never occured to me before, but I can speak Irish reasonably well (a result of my irish nan babysitting me every day after school until i was eleven, and for some reason teaching me) so could I take a GCSE in it? As in, if I ask my school can they enter me for it or do you have to have taken a course in it at school?

CCEA do both full and short course but if your school isn't in N.I. it's not likely they will be set up to offer CCEA exams.
You are not required to study a subject in school/college to be able to take exams in it.

Yes, you can take a GCSE. It is not necessary to study a subject at school, but you will need to take the examination at a registered centre. If you are based in the UK, 3A Tutors (Bristol) and Oxford Tutorial College (Oxford) are approved centres for any examinations.

You can enter for the specification as a private candidate, but you will need to find a centre that is willing to accept you. For the speaking test, you will need to ensure that a speaker is available in the language concerned. As an external student, you will need to pay your own exam fee as well as any accomodation charge.
