That's exactly the case.

Also known as Classical Modern Irish, this is the standard language
promulgated by the professional poets as early as 1250 A.D. It was
initially used mainly for verse, while prose remained more influenced
by archaic forms. Gradually, however, the EMI norm spread to prose as
well, so that by the time Geoffrey Keating was writing EMI was the
standard across the board.
Perhaps the best easily available summary of the verbal system is to
be found in the chapter "An Nua-Ghaeilge Chlasaiceach" by McManus in
_Stair na Gaeilge_. It would be easy to extract model conjugations
from there, I think.
