Sports

Coláiste Éamann Rís attempts to involve our students in as many extra-curricular activities as possible subject to available resources. The school has a long tradition of involvement in hurling achieving many notable successes down the years. The school enters teams in competitions in all age groups from U14 to U18. We also promote gaelic football in the school entering competitions at junior and senior level.
In recent times we have also enjoyed considerable success at soccer and students participate in competitions at all levels. The grounds comprising eleven acres at the rear of the school are the envy of many schools with full length pitches for both hurling, gaelic football and soccer.
We have a proud tradition in handball. We enter our students in school’s handball competitions and have had much success both at Leinster and Irish school levels. Other sports in which we enter teams are Athletics, Badminton and Golf.
