Gaelic Football

Gaelic takes place after school at the Éire Óg pitch in Greystones. It is for boys and girls from 3rd to 6th class. Every so often we play matches against other teams and every year the Coughlan Cup and the mini 7’s take place.


Basketball is on every day for boys and girls from 3rd to 6th class for an hour after school. here is a basketball league on during the summer term. At the end of the year 6th class get to play the teachers. Everyone enjoys watching this game!!


Hurling is on weekly from 3 o’clock to 4 o’clock at the Éire Óg pitches in Greystones. It is for boys and girls from 3rd class to 6th class. We usually start by hitting a sliotar around for a bit. Then we do warm ups and stretches and after that we split up into groups. We could use some more players! Anyone interested?


Athletics is after school in Shoreline. Our coaches are very experienced. We learn how to do the shot put, long jump, high jump, 100 metre sprint and relay races. Boys and girls from 1st class to 6th class can do athletics. It’s so much fun and we encourage you to try it out.


The parents organise swimming. Classes are held in the Shoreline Facility in Greystones. Children are notified by letter when registration is taking place.


Short tennis is on every Tuesday after school for boys and girls from 1st and 2nd class. It is on in St. Killian’s Hall and Diane Cahill is the teacher.
