Since 2016 the school has run rugby training in the school and in 2017 played a number of games at Junior level in the Emerging schools competition. We are supported in this endeavour by Connacht Rugby.
The story of Connacht Rugby is one that dates back to 1885 when six small fledgling clubs met to form the Connacht Branch of the IRFU and with it the Connacht Senior Provincial Team. Their ambition was to grow the game of Rugby in Connacht and to provide a platform for our best talent to shine at provincial and ultimately international level. Since then little has changed in terms of the aim of everyone involved in rugby in Connacht, only the rugby landscape itself has changed.
