The school has a very active involvement in Gaelic games with teams in football, hurling and camogie.
Boys and girls from 3rd class upwards are welcome, regardless of whether the child is a member of a GAA club or not. Please note, all children must have a gum shield to play.
The under 11 matches take place before Christmas and the under 10 and senior matches take place after Christmas.
Keeping up with the tradition of Gaelic football in the school, in 2016/2017 school year, we had a variety of teams entered into the Cumann na mBunscol league.
Qualified instruction is provided for all classes from 6th class to junior infants on a six-week rotation as part of their PE programme.
Training takes place on Mondays after school, from 3:15 to 4:15pm on either the GAA pitch or AstroTurf at the school.
Scoil an Linbh Íosa has a proud hurling tradition. Previous teams have enjoyed much success in the Cumann na mBunscol league over the years. We hope, if the demand is there, to field hurling and camogie teams in the coming school year.

Well done to the U-11 footballers who finished up their season at training today. The children played a number of matches over the past couple of weeks with great spirit and determination.
Often, the weather meant called for rescheduling of some of their matches. However, the U-11's persevered and played their heart and soul out each time. Mr O. Sullivan and Ms. O' Connor are very proud of their efforts and commitment this term and would like to thank them for their participation. This will certainly be a team to watch in the future. Senior and u-10 football training will begin later in the year.
