Sports in the Castle

The Castle has a very strong sporting tradition and was home to an Olympian many International Soccer Stars. Sport plays a huge part of life in the Castle and participation is encouraged by all staff in the school.

The school has a Senior Football  and Hurling team along with the newly introduced Soccer Team. The School competes in Cumann na nBunscols athletics competition each year. There are many initiatives held throughout the year like our School Leagues, Castle Cup, Cross Country, Sports Day and more.

Partnerships within and outside the school are an important aspect of sport in the Drimnagh Castle. We are very fortunate to have a variety of partnerships here in the Castle. We have an extremely supportive and on-going partnership with Crumlin GAA, St. James’ Gaels and Good Counsel GAA who come in to do GAA coaching sessions with our boys. Oblate Basketball Club offer basketball coaching throughout the year along with cycling programmes from our Community Garda Barry. We are always open to local organisations who would like to offer coaching to our pupils.
