Spikeball training is taking place after school from 3-4pm every Tuesday for 5th and 6th class.  Training will take place in the school yard or in the village hall.


There is a Spikeball Blitz on January 24th (Tuesday), in Moyle Rovers. We will be entering 3 teams for this blitz. At the moment the children are busy preparing for the competition.

SPIKEBALL is an initiative developed by the Volleyball Association of Ireland to aid School Teachers in introducing Junior Volleyball to their students. Volleyball has traditionally been viewed as a difficult sport to introduce to young children, but it doesn’t have to be. SPIKEBALL is an adapted 4-player v 4-player volleyball game that was introduced to Ireland in the last 3 years and has seen participation levels increase by over 300%.




Three teams took part in the recent Spikeball competition in Clonmel. Pupils worked extremely hard all day in match after match but unfortunately we didn’t make it any further in the competition this year.  All pupils enjoyed participating in this sport.


Spikeball competitions are starting again. The first competition takes place next Thursday the 14th in Moyle Rovers. A bus has been organised to bring the pupils to the event. Best of luck to the pupils in their first match of the season.




The Spikeball County Competition took place on Wednesday. Our teams did really well and won lots of matches throughout the day, however we were unsuccessful in our last match which meant we could not progress any further in the competition. Well done to all the pupils who partipated on the day.
