The Coláiste and Chreagáin Junior Hurling Team has also entered the newly formed GRETB hurling competition which includes Galway Community College, Archbishop McHale College, Clarin College Athenry and Merlin College. This competition is a great chance for our players to showcase the development of hurling in Coláiste and Chreagáin over the past number of years.

Ladies Football

All abilities are welcome, many girls are learning to play Gaelic for the first time. Their skills improve after each training session and match and they always show great team spirit and enthusiasm. Playing Gaelic is a great opportunity for young girls to learn the importance of co-operation, hard work, and commitment, as well as keeping them fit, active, and healthy both mentally and physically.

GAA Future Leaders Programme

Our Transition Year students have taken part in the GAA Future Leaders Programme. The “Future Leaders Transition Year Programme” is a joint initiative from the GAA and the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It is a cross-curricular programme comprising of a series of modules designed to encourage maturity, initiative, responsibility and leadership skills in pupils. The Programme gives pupils the knowledge and skills to support all roles required in the effective staging of Gaelic Games. As part of the Programme students are challenged to organise and run both on-field and off-field events for younger students.
