Sport

Sporting activities have always played a vital role in the life of St Kieran’s College. Participation is encouraged for all students in all years.

Each one of these activities contributes to the overall wellbeing and holistic education of our students but also forms part of their memory of their student days. Five playing pitches within a city campus affords our students great outdoor spaces. Involvement in sport contributes to our students physical and mental wellbeing.

We offer a wide range of sporting activities including Hurling, Gaelic Football, Handball, Soccer, Cross Country Running, Track and Field Athletics, Equestrian, Basketball, Badminton and Golf. We have also encouraged and supported students with interests in developing their sport of choice including, swimming, orienteering, ice-hockey and canoeing to name a few.
