The Gaelic football league for third and fourth classes is currently ongoing on Wednesday afternoons. Each day we facilitate close to seventy boys playing for their favourite county teams and having lots of fun in the process. The matches, organised by Mr. Concannon, are refereed by sixth class pupils and are supervised by teachers. Every pupil involved will receive a medal – win, lose or draw.
1) November (7th – 11th) 2016: A weeklong celebration with our present day pupils
2) St Joseph’s Parish will come together with the boys’ and girls’ schools to celebrate their joint 150th anniversary on the Feast day of St Joseph, March 19th 2017.
3) Past pupil reunion: Early Spring.
The boys in St. Joseph’s met Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Paul O’Connell at the launch of the IRFU / Aldi ‘Play Rugby’ Programme. The aim is encourage children to exercise and eat healthily. The programme hopes to increase the number of children participating in the initiative to 100,000 by 2018.
