We started Camogie in St. Angela’s in 2015 as many of our students were keen to get involved and participate. Originally we just had a junior team consisting of girls from 1st – 4th year but due to the popularity of the sport, we now have a senior team also. We have had great success over the last number of years, winning the Munster and All Ireland Junior B colleges Camogie competition in 2017, then the Junior A and Senior B All-Irelands in 2018.
We have players from various clubs around the city & county represented on the team. Great camaraderie and friendships are created within the panels as all the players enjoy representing the school and getting to know one another.
Ladies Football has been played in St Angela’s for many years and has led to great success over those years. It is a very popular sport in the school with both a Junior and Senior team. The Junior team usually consists of students from 1st to 4th year while the Senior team usually consists of team of students from 3rd to 6th Years. The school had great success in 2016 with Munster and All-Ireland success achieved at Junior Level. The players come from clubs around the school area although some players only take up the sport while in school, the friendships and memories which are created last throughout the student‘s students’ time in the school.
Hockey is just one of the many popular sports at the Ursuline. Each year a First year, Minor, Inter and Senior team enter into the South-East League and Cup competitions and play teams from Wexford, Kilkenny and Carlow. A selection of our girls go on to represent the South-East at provincial level. The teams also partake in friendly matches throughout the year. Training takes place 1-2 times per week during lunchtimes and after school.
Soccer is one of many popular sports in St. Angela’s. Students take part in a number of different competitions including: The First Year Cup, the Minor Cup and the Junior Cup. Each of these cup matches are played both home and away. The Ursuline play their home matches in the Regional Sports Centre/WIT Arena. Soccer training takes place one to two evenings per week after school.
Students have the opportunity to develop their social skills by taking part and this is a great resource for students to unwind after a day of learning, meet new friends and represent their school. Students partake in Futsal and outdoor soccer which offers many opportunities for students to portray their abilities and strengths. The new Junior Cycle encourages students to develop their personal strengths and skills and soccer offers students the opportunity to develop their Profile of Achievement which reports on the students achievements across a broad range of areas for the Junior Cycle.
