School News & Events


Sport is an integral part of school life. Students are encouraged to participate as part of their leisure education and social development. New sports are encouraged both indoor and outdoor, and a healthy attitude to sport is inculcated in students. Ardscoil Phádraig provides a huge range of opportunities to train, play and compete in sport/activities, no matter what your passion, ability or level.

The range of games played includes Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Gaelic football, Hurling, Indoor football, Rugby, Soccer, Lacrosse, Hockey, Rock-Climbing, Trampoline and Table-tennis. Although competition is a feature of many of the sports we also cater for students who may not wish to compete but want to train in a particular sport for the health and fitness benefits.  Whether trying out a new sport or continue training in a sport students are already familiar with, we invite all students to get involved and have fun.

With many different types of  sport to choose from, ranging from team sports, adventure sports, water sports to martial arts, there is something for everyone!
