Here at Scoil Mhuire, we are proud of our sporting history and have produced many stars down through the years! Scoil Mhuire participates and has been extremely successful in a variety of sports such as GAA, soccer and, more recently, cross-country running. Our football teams are coached by own our staff, including Mr. William Joy, Mr. Paul O’ Donoghue and Mr. Paudie Russell (boys) and Ms. Sarah Pigott and Ms. Denise Carroll (girls). The children were also introduced to a fantastic lunchtime basketball blitz by Mrs. Fitzgerald, which they thoroughly enjoyed.We hope to have a basketball team up and running next year. We were also delighted to have the ‘mile a day’ initiative introduced by Mrs. Orlaith Reidy. It is fantastic to see the children progress week to week!
Our visiting teachers, Mr. Mick Sealy and Mrs. Emir Irwin O’Shea teach the children the strands of gymnastics, games and dance and have been a wonderful asset to our school. We are also extremely fortunate to have Mr. PJ Reidy visit ever fortnight to assist the children with their GAA skills. He is always on the look-out for the next rising star!!! As well as this, our 3rd-5th classes have been attending swimming lessons over the past number of years and have gained huge confidence and ability each time. We are very proud of the sporting tradition here at Scoil Mhuire and are always looking for new ways to bring out the various talents of our children!
