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.

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.

Congratulations to Brendan and Ross .

They played for the Dublin Primary Schools hurling team on Friday against Belfast. They won well and played brilliantly in the backs. The future for Joey’s hurling looks bright.

The Under 10 and the Under 11 Relay Teams won in Santry to round off a fantastic week for athletes in our school. Congratulations boys on this wonderful achievement and many thanks to Mr. Ring and Melina for all the time and effort he put into preparing them.
