Comhghairdeachas le foirne peile na nUamhanna a bhuaigh an dá sciath le déanaí. Well done to our boys’ and girls’ teams on winning their respective sciath na scol competitions in Páirc Uí Chaoimh recently. Preparation began on September 2nd with training and practice games before beginning the competition. Both teams played four games in the league section before qualifying for semi finals, which they won. The finals were held on November 12th and our boys beat Ballygarvan by 3-5 to 1-2 with a wonderful, spirited display before the girls repeated the gaisce with a brilliant 3-7 to 0-2 victory over Gaelscoil Carrigaline. Thanks to parents and the Éire Óg club for their support throughout the campaign and to the Éire Óg men’s and ladies’ club for providing food and drinks afterwards in Desmond’s Restaurant. Buíochas comh maith leis na múinteoirí go léir agus Charlie a chuir an obair go léir isteach i ranganna corpoideachais tríd na blianta agus don lucht tacaíochta go léir a tháinig ar an lá mhór. Maith sibh go léir.

We encourage the children to take part in as many sports as possible
and we co-operate fully with the local sports clubs in their efforts
to promote sports for children.

We take the children training after school if the weather is favourable and we enter
the Sciath na Scol competitions for Hurling, Camogie and Football (Boys and Girls)
in which we have won many cups, trophies and medals over the years.

We take part in the Cork City Sports every year and in recent years
we have won numerous medals and trophies.

For the past number of years we have organised specialised coaches for
various age groups in rugby, pitch and putt, soccer and tennis.
This coaching takes place during the normal school P.E. time.

Our school is well equipped for sports and we have a wide variety of
sports equipment available in the school. We also have a
school hall, a large outdoor area for games and an all-weather pitch is 
available in the adjacent Éire Óg GAA facility. Our thanks to
Éire Óg GAA club for allowing us to use their pitches for
training and playing school matches and to the parents
who help us to take the children to matches.
