Sport/Physical Education

Kilcoe National School has a proud sporting tradition. We are closely connected to our local GAA team Ilen Rovers and many of our students play for the Ilen Rovers under-age teams. Some of our past pupils have even played in Croke Park with the Cork Senior football team.

  • Every year, as part of the PE curriculum we avail of the GAA Coaching in Schools Programme. This involves a coaching block of between 6 to 10 weeks where we learn skills in Gaelic Football and Hurling.

  • Every year we do a block of swimming lessons in Schull Harbour Hotel swimming pool.

  • Professional coaches provide blocks of lessons for all the classes in  Dance, Yoga and Gymnastics.

  • We also enjoy entering competitions such as the Sciath na Scoil and the Cork City sports each year.

  • We acheived our first Active Flag in June 2015
