We are very fortunate in Scoil Mhuire Ruadhán have an all-purpose Astro Turf sports pitch. It is suitable for all sports and the children really enjoy using this wonderful facility. Classes get to use the Astro Turf twice a week at break times, and also get to use it for P.E.
We also have a school hall available in Scoil Mhuire Ruadhán. We get to enjoy indoor sports in the ‘halla’ on wet days and also use it to facilitate movement breaks on rainy days. We also enjoy Gymnastics in the halla, and use it for school plays and concerts.
We have a basketball court available to us also. We play on this during yard, and use it at the end of the day to line up before being collected to go home.
Wet pore play surface
The Junior and Middle classes enjoy playing on our wet pore play surfaces during yard. This soft surface is ideal for the younger classes to play on. We also use it in the summer months for movement breaks and drama lessons.
Hurling and Camogie
We are very passionate about hurling and camogie in our school. Anne comes to the school to teach us the fundamental movements of sport and we practice running with the ball, catching the ball and hitting the ball from junior infants. We have a school team and we enjoy competing against local teams throughout the year.
