Well done to the many boys who took part with their clubs in the Dublin Indoors Athletics championships at the weekend. Top man was Gareth who won gold in the 600m while Dara and Alex also collected medals. Click here for a few action shots. There are some schools’ cross country and other athletics events coming up in the next few months so get training!! Cross country photos. Cross country video Schools Indoors Video Photos
Our first run of the school year, the Clonliffe Harriers Schools XC took place at the beautiful Santry Demense. No medals on this occasion but the boys represented St. Joseph’s very well indeed with Gareth taking an outstanding 6th place(out of 200 runners!) in the 5th class race running against boys up to two years older than him. Well done everyone! Photos.

We are continuing a long tradition in St. Joseph´s by running a 3rd and 4th class football league in the first term. It started today and will continue for the next four Wednesdays, weather permitting. Some present football Dublin superstars (Eoghan O´Gara and Denis Bastick) played their first football matches in this league many years ago. Thanks to Mr. Concannon for organising, the other teachers who helped supervise and the 6th class boys who are refereeing. Click below to see more photos.
We are delighted to have been nominated for the #BeActive Education Award by the Irish Sports Council.

Well done to Cillian and Dara who were competing in Athletics National finals today. Wearing a lime green top, Cillian´s races can be seen at -3.37.00 and -1.56.00 on this video. If you have ambitions to be a hurdler look at these drills-some you can do at home with a high stool, chair or coffee table in place of a hurdle.Running Barefoot- is it safe?
