Scoil Mhuire Lourdes encourages all students to take part in lots of different types of sport and one way the students can do this is by being part of the Sciath Na Scol team. Students take part in football trials in September and hurling trials in January to try and make the panel. We usually have a high turn out for these trials and the standard is always very good. Our Sciath Na Scol team has done very in the last few years and consistently get to their sections finals. We have a great tradition of being a tough team to play against and other managers have commented on our great sportmanship which we always expect our players to display.
Some past students have gone on to make the grade with Cork, mostly notably Nicholas Murphy and Rob O’ Shea. Currently we have a number of past students who are playing with Cork under age.
Scoil Mhuire Lourdes also takes part in a variety of GAA blitzes in both codes.
We are lucky that our local club, Carrigaline GAA, provides us with a quality coach, Brendan O’ Driscoll who takes all classes throughout the year and trains them well.
