Sports

We have a strong sporting tradition in Holy Trinity. We’re working hard towards our Active Flag also.
Read up about the range of sports taking place in our school.

Gaelic Football
The girls Gaelic team are in to the 2016 final in Croke Park again this year. Let’s make it a win three years in a row girls!

The boys Gaelic football team have also managed to get into the final in Croke Park. We are so proud of our two football teams. Best of luck to them on the day.

Check out our school blog for match reviews. Thanks to their coaches for the early morning and after school training sessions: Ms Monaghan, Ms O Neill, Mr C Henry and Mr D Henry.

Camogie
Wohoo! We have a new camogie team! Dublin star Ms. Free and Ms O Neill are training girls from 3rd-6th on Thursdays at lunch time. We have lots of promising camogie players.

Hurling
Mr O Grady, Mr. Fitzgibbon and Mr. Mc Conigley have spent time training the hurlers since the start of the year and the hard work has paid off – they will be playing in the finals in Croke Park on June 21st 2016! Best of luck boys.

Swimming
While in Holy Trinity children get an opportunity to participate in several weeks of swimming lessons in Trinity Sports and Leisure Club. All abilities are catered for by the expert swimming teachers.
The children thoroughly enjoy this part of the PE curriculum!

I liked going swimming because it was great fun learning how to swim. I loved it! (Jack, 4th class)

Athletics
Every year Holy Trinity participates in the Morton Stadium athletic competitions. Schools from all over Dublin take part. Pupils have won many medals here over the years. Events include sprints, relays, 500m, long jump, shot putt and hurdles.

Tennis
Every year the 3rd class students get tennis coaching for a few weeks. This is great chance for them to learn the correct grip for holding a tennis racket and the right technique for serving and hitting the ball. It greatly improves the children’s hand eye coordination and their confidence grows as they get better and better.

Other Sports
We are always trying out new things. Over the last few years the 6th class students have had the opportunity to try boxing. Also this year we had a team represent the school in a bowling competition. New sports tried this year were cricket and ultimate frisbee.
