Extra Curricular

Since its formation in 2004 , Gallen CS has promoted a wide variety of extra curricular activities which promote the all round holistic development of its students. This helps them to be socially responsible and mature young adults in line with the ethos and mission statement of Gallen CS.  Gallen CS students can enjoy and take part in   Gaelic football for both boys and girls  , rugby , basketball and  hurling. Gallen CS has enjoyed numerous successes at county , regional and National level  in both gaelic football and basketball.

In  2004 Gallen CS  reached the All Ireland Senior  Vocational A  Football Final losing to St Brogans Bandon. In  2011 Gallen CS won the All Ireland Senior Vocational A Football Title in Croke Park defeating Clonakilty CC before finishing runners up to Holy Trinity Cookstown in 2012 .  Gallen CS triumphed in the All Ireland Junior A Vocational Football final in 2013 defeating St Marks Warrenpoint.

2016 was a memorable year which saw  our mens and ladies teams win the All Ireland Senior double. Gallen CS won the  Ladies Football title beating Colaiste Phobal Sliabh Luachra Rathmore and the mens team defeated Holy Rosary Mountbellew to win the All Ireland Colleges Senior B  title in Croke Park.

 

In 2014 our Cadette Basketball team won the All Ireland defeating St Josephs Charlestown in a packed National Basketball Arena. The Scor Ballad Group team of Zoe Rooney , Valene Greer , Niamh Delaney , Sarah Kenny and Avril Spain have won an unprecedented 3 All Irelands including this year.

Gallen CS is proud of its extra – curricular history and achievements and thanks those teachers and volunteers who give countless hours of their free time to coach , mentor and inspire our students past and present to great successes  not just on the sporting fields but in life itself by helping to develop  young people who are able to take their place in society.

Gallen CS is not just a Community School but a School for the Community  and it is because of this that Gallen CS  recognises the fundamental importance of continuing to forge links with community and voluntary groups in the wider West Offaly area.

Ni neart go cur le cheile.
