In January – February we have a GAA Coach who teaches Gaelic Football skills. We are delighted to avail of this activity. Keeping up with long tradition of GAA football in the school.
A school football team was started in 1984 and we began to take part in the Cumann na mBunscol competitions in 1985.
In spite of the small number enrolled it has always been our desire to take part and get involved. Competition is not the sole consideration but is has a motivating effect to improve standards. Jerseys were borrowed before we were able to buy a set of our own.
Cumann na mBunscol finals
Our school team has reached the final in Navan regularly and we were delighted to win for the first time in 2006. It is always a very special occasion for the boys and girls to play in Pairc Tailteann. Our most recent final was in 2013.
The school purchased a new set of jerseys in 1999 to coincide with our very first final in Pairc Tailteann. In 2012, we bought a new set of jerseys. Our school crest is featured on these jerseys. The crest was designed as part of a project to mark the Millennium.
Recently we have entered a girlsâ€™ team for the first time in a few years.
Sam Maguire was a regular visitor for many years with winning Meath teams. He always caused great excitement and it was a fantastic chance for everyone in the community to come together.
