Rugby Coaching

Today was the first session of rugby coaching for 5th and 6th Classes. They really enjoyed this wonderful game!

A good time to start rugby, as we think of the Irish Rugby Team preparing for their historic attempt to win the Grand Slam in England on St. Patrick’s Day! Well done to the team for winning the Six Nations Championship and the very best of luck on Saturday.

The girls in Scoil Bhríde will be shouting for the Boys in Green on St. Patrick’s Day!


Camogie Display

In Scoil Bhríde (Cailíní), we are very passionate about our national games. Camogie is a wonderful game. It is fast and highly skillful. Today we had a camogie display for the school. The girls who play camogie every week showed us how it is done! All girls from 3rd to 6th are welcome to come along to camogie training on Mondays after school with Mr. Devlin and Mr. Maguire. It’s a great way to keep fit and healthy — and of course to have fun!

Flying Fit in Fingal!

Over the last few weeks, girls from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class have been training really hard and making a great effort to improve their fitness. On Tuesday 27th, the girls from Scoil Bhríde Cailiní braved the freezing weather conditions to take part in the  cross country running event in Porterstown Park.

 It was an extremely successful day and we had incredible performances from every girl from 3rd to 6th class!

Our 3rd class girls kicked the day off in style with a brilliant 300 metres run.  Our very own Aimee Corcoran finished in a wonderful 2nd place! Well done Aimee!

The girls in 4th class were next in the 400 metres run and we had several top ten finishes!

Then it was the turn of our 5th class girls running in the 500 metres event. There were some terrific performances. Special congratulations must go to Aoife Corcoran who finished in First Place with a superb run.

The 6th class finished the day off in impressive fashion, running 600 metres in very snowy conditions!

Well done to all the girls involved!

A great day was had by all. A special thank you to Mr. McCrudden who has been training the girls in all sorts of weather over the last few weeks. A big thank you also to Ms. McKay and Ms. O’Reilly who accompanied the girls to the event and and gave them great support and encouragement. We look forward to another cross country run on the 20th of March in Porterstown Park! Every girl is welcome!

Cross Country Running

There has been a HUGELY enthusiastic response to Cross Country training from the girls in 3rd to 6th Classes. A very large number of girls have been training at lunchtime in the field. Well done to all concerned. The first outing is on Tuesday 27th February in Porterstown. Watch this space!



Rang a Cúig have been staying active! We organised our own class Olympics! We made an Olympic torch and ran through the school to launch our competition! We also made our own medals and used measuring instruments from the Maths room to organise our different event! After the Olympics, we held a medal ceremony complete with music!
