Gaelic games plays a huge part in the annual sporting calendar in Howth Primary School. In the past 10 years the profile of GAA in the school has dramatically increased from 1 Seniors Boys Football team in the beginning to our current position of 6 GAA teams covering Hurling and football, competing at Junior Boys/Girls level (3rd-5th class) in both codes as well as Senior Boys/Girls in both codes.
The school partakes in the Cumann na mBunscol competitions in both hurling and football and the Fingal Leagues which is a football only competition. Our school teams have enjoyed a huge amount of success in recent years winning Junior Boys football titles in the Fingal League and our Senior Girls Football team are the current holders of the Cumann na mBunscol title.
Great days out in Croke Park and Parnell Park have created many wonderful memories and hopefully there will be many more to come as GAA goes from strength to strength here in Howth Primary School.
Huge congratulations to Daniel Sheridan & Rohan O’Shea who were both selected to play for a Dublin Cumann na mBunscol side at half time in the Dublin v Roscommon league match in Croke Park on 24th March. This fantastic achievement was merited for their brilliant performances for both School and Club. Well done boys.
