Well done to the girls who participated in a basketball tournament on the 21st March. All girls played their hearts out. Well done girls!


The Presentation camogie team, which is made up of 4th, 5th and 6th Class girls, have gotten their 2023 season underway!

The first game saw our team come up against a strong and physical team from St. Ursula’s, the girls fought for every ball and played with fierce determination, coming back from being twelve points down at half time, to being beaten by just one goal at the final whistle. An excellent come back from the girls, who were so unlucky on the day.

Friday saw our team line out against Holy Cross in Cleaboy. They put on a super performance and really worked together as a team. They won on a final score of 9-4 to 1-3. It was a great team effort and all 21 girls played a part on the day, while also having great fun!

A special thank you goes to our 5th and 6th Class supporters! We loved your posters and chants on the side-lines .

Huge congratulations to everyone on the team. We are so so proud of you. Pres Abú!


Congratulations  to our fantastic basketball team who represented our school so well in the Waterford City Annual Basketball Blitz in the Mercy Secondary School on 14th March.

Well done girls!


A massive well done to our wonderful indoor camogie team who took part in the Cuman na mBunscoil Indoor Blitz on 25th January in the Carrickpherish Sports Hub.
