Hurling and Camogie
Hurling and camogie are a big part of our lives here in Killadooley N.S. All pupils in the school from Junior Infants to Sixth Class take part in hurling and camogie. We are delighted that Trevor Moore and Diarmuid Quinlan are coming from our local GAA club Borris-Kilcotton to train the children and help develop their hurling skills. The focus of the sessions is to develop hurling skills as well as fitness. It is important to the school that all pupils be included in hurling each week no matter their skill level and that everyone always enjoys training. The pupils in Junior and Senior Infants have been participating in bean-ball which is a programme designed to develop hurling skills with young children.
Each year the older pupils in the school take part in Cumann na mBunscol. The boys enter the hurling competition which is 9 a side competition while the girls enter the camogie which is 7 a side competition. Every year the pupils always put their heart and soul into the matches and represent the school superbly at all matches.
The school is very proud of the school achievements in both the hurling and camogie competitions with the school often getting to the final in both the boys and girls competition. We are very proud that both our hurling and camogie teams won their division in Cumann na mBunscol in 2017.
Here are some pictures of our Junior and Senior Infants playing bean-ball.

Hurling training has started back with coach Trevor. All the children are showing a true skill for the sport and having great fun! We can definitely see future hurling champions coming out of Killadooley NS
