Hurling is one of the main sports within St Louis Grammar School. We compete in Ulster 'A' competitions from Year 8 (Thompson Cup) to Year 14 (Mageean Cup). The Mageean Cup is the Marque Hurling Competition within Ulster Schools, and all our young hurlers strive to play at this level when entering the school.
Training for each year group will take place twice a week with one game. Mr Gillan, Mr Morgan, Mr Cassidy, and Mr Boyle coach the teams throughout the school and ensure that every pupil that picks up a hurl enjoys representing St Louis. All training takes place on our brand new, state of the art, 3G pitch.
Individually, our pupils can compete for acolades like an All-Star Award. This is recognition for their hard work and talent shown throughout the Mageean campaign. Most recently, Daire McMullan (Dunloy) won an All-Star for his excellent performances in last year's competition.
Camogie is thriving in St Louis Grammar School with all teams from Year 8 to senior competing in Ulster ‘A’ competitions. Last year we were finalists in 3 out of 4 age groups, year 8, junior and senior camogie. We are very fortunate to have a lot of dual players in the school and so we work carefully to accommodate camogie alongside ladies gaelic football.
All teams train twice a week, with a game most weeks. The teachers involved in the coaching of our camogie teams are Mrs McShane, Mrs Loughlin and Mrs Doherty. We have a vast array of facilities where we host training and games, as well as giving our senior players the opportunity to engage in a strength and conditioning program to prepare them for competition.
St Louis is very pleased to be able to say we have a great history of camogie All Stars, the most recent in 2021 being Katie Molloy and Orlagh Convery. As well as this, Erin Coulter received a Future Stars Award which was another great achievement
Ladies Gaelic Football in St Louis is a fun, friendly, competitive environment. It is a great way for the girls to make new friends outside of their class and year group. There will be training on Monday and Wednesday after school, all abilities are welcome! These sessions will be taken by Miss Lavery. St Louis is entered in three Ulster Schools competitions for the upcoming year, U20c, U16B and U14B. This is a great opportunity that allows the girls to play against other schools competitively.
Athletics is part of our curriculum, and we teach it in the last term in preparation for the school Sports Day. Sports Day takes place in June, and we cover all the traditional track and field events. All pupils are encouraged to take part and choose from two events to compete in on Sports Day. Our pupils represent the school in various athletics and cross-country competitions and have been competitive at ulster and All-Ireland level.
St Louis has been fortunate to have a large number of students recognised on the Ulster College’s Camogie All Star team since their inception in 2007. Shannon Graham and Louise McAleese were the school’s first recipients in 2008. Shannon claimed one of the first ever three in a row All Stars (2008, 2009 & 2010).
Our most recent all stars in 2021 was Katie Molloy (Dunloy Cuchullains) and Orlagh Convery (Geraldines Portglenone)
