Sport plays a very central role in Gaelscoil na Douglase. A wide range of activities are offered.



Football, Hurling and Camogie


Gaelic football, camogie and hurling are in great demand at Gaelscoil na Dúglaise. The children get many opportunities to get a taste of our national games and participate at the highest level, making regular appearances at Sciath na Scol finals.


The girls and boys train twice a week from September, the girls on Wednesdays and Fridays after school and the boys on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school, we start with Football which runs from September through to the end of October and Camogie/Hurling starts immediately after running to the end of the year.



   Múinteoir Éamonn and Múinteoir Marc prepare the children to take part in the City Sports Day in MTU every June. They bring home medals every year.

School Athletics


Individual running races are involved as well as relay races . More often than not, a child from our school reaches the County Championship. This is a great honour for us.

Children regularly get the chance to test their athletics skills during PE lessons as well as during our annual Gaelscoil na Dúglaise Sports Day in June.


There is a great demand for tennis classes in Gaelscoil na Douglais. They are attended by children from Infant to Class 6 classes . Up to seventy children are playing tennis on Tuesdays and Thursdays .

Great emphasis is placed on enjoyment and skill development in the classes. The tennis courts are used in the summer.

Conor Clarke is a fully trained trainer from Bishopstown Academy who is in charge of the classes. Conor also organizes a tennis summer camp in the Gaelscoil.
