Handball
 

A brand new competition size one-wall handball wall has been built inside the new gym recently and is a new fast paced sport that has been introduced in the school. With the aim that as many students as possible from all years will get an experience in, and gain an appreciation for a great GAA sport. The wall and sport will be officially opened within the coming weeks.
