Sport

Our school is very proud of our rich sporting tradition. Sports played in the school during P.E. class include Gaelic Football, Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, Rugby, Hockey, Gymnastics and much more. We are very proud of our school teams who compete admirably in Soccer, Gaelic Football and Athletics. The jewel in the crown of our sporting facilities is undoubtedly our impressive All Weather Astro-turf field which enables us to have our P.E. lessons during even the worst of weather. We can also play a far wider range of sports on this field with hockey and lawn bowls just some of the sports introduced to the children during P.E. lessons and playtime during recent years.

One of our past pupils, Michael O’ Donoghue was recently a member of the Kerry Senior football panel, Linda Bruggener a current member of the Kerry Senior Ladies panel, Micheál Devlin a member of the Kerry U20 team and Keri Ann Hanrahan a member of the Kerry Ladies U16 team. while in the last couple of years, past pupils Jack Hanrahan, Karol Fleming and Linda Bruggener amongst others, were members of the boys and girls respectively, County Primary Schools teams that played during the half time breaks of Senior Munster Championship game. We look forward to many more pupils also going on to wear the green and gold!!

We encourage all children, regardless of ability to sample as many different sports as possible and it is a facet of school life that the children really enjoy each week.

We are also very fortunate in Loughquittane N.S. to have the children each week receiving expert training in Gaelic Football from Mr. Vince Cooper, a coach with the Kerry Co. Board, Hurling from Mr Colm O Brien, Kerry County Board GDA, Basketball from Ms Emer O Neill, Golf with Mr Mark Heinemann and Pilates with Emir Coffey.

The children also get to enjoy a 6 week block of swimming lessons each year in the local Gleneagle hotel from local certified swimming instructors and the school is proud of the fact that almost every child in the school is now a capable swimmer. These lessons are eagerly awaited each year by all the children who love their trips down to Dieter, Stephanie and Chris for their lessons!!
