The staff at St.Brigid’s N.S. are passionate about introducing the skills of Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie from a young age. We always strive to achieve high levels of competency in all sports and to foster the importance of teamwork and respect amongst each other. St. Brigid’s have formed close links with the local GAA clubs. Claughaun GAA club provides excellent coaching support as well as a venue to train and play various matches. We are very proud to see our players go on to play for the local GAA clubs and also the Limerick City teams at under -age and senior level respectively.
Trials were held after school last month for the Limerick City Schools Divisional Camogie team and we were allowed to send 3 players and all three girls made the team. Well done to all the team and to Ms. O Dwyer for entering them.
St.Brigid’s N.S. entered the girls U-13 city football championships during the first term in 2016. We had a panel of 20 players from 5th and 6th class. The girls trained every Wednesday in Claughan with Mrs. McGrath and Ms.Lanigan. St. Brigid’s won two out of three of their group matches, a great achievement given that it was our first competitive football competition. We are already looking forward to next years competition.
Flan Clune Memorial Cup: 15th June 2017
This year the pupils from third class took part in a hurling and camogie blitz in memory of our dear colleague and friend Flan Clune. You are sadly missed by us all. The teams fought hard for the coveted cup and cheered on one another. We saw some wonderful new talent and potential Limerick players! Well done to Clare who beat Limerick in the final of the Blitz! Flan would have been thrilled! Thank you to Claughaun and Mick Graham for allowing us to use Claughaun.
