The Grammar School provides football as an after-school activity for junior and senior boys. Sessions are played from 12:45-1:45pm on Wednesday afternoons at the ‘Cabbage Patch’ facility located next to the school. The boys compete in the official FAI Leinster League and Cup competitions. They also compete in the Dublin Inner City cup. In recent years the girls have successfully formed a team and have played in official competitions the past 2 years.

We are very grateful to Dublin City Council for facilitating us at this time. The numbers training have been on average 12-16 students each week and all enjoy the workout and banter. There is good morale among students and all ability levels are catered for.
