Gaelic Football


The St. John of God girls have proven their worth on the football pitch in recent years! In 2014/2015, the girls had huge success when they won the Roinn D County Final. The following year the girls progressed to the Roinn C County Final but were narrowly beaten by a strong Callan team. This school year, 2016/2017, the girls competed in Roinn B and made it all the way to the semi-final. There is a great enthusiasm for Gaelic Football in our school. This year we had upwards of 50 girls from 4th, 5th and 6th class training hard every Tuesday. We have close ties to Kilkenny City Ladies Football Club which allows the girls to continue to play Ladies Football after the school season has finished. Gaelic Football is also incorporated into our P.E. programme so that all girls in the school get the chance to play throughout the school year.
