Past pupil and All Ireland Medal Winner Amy Connolly makes guest appearance at Cluny GAA Launch
Cluny GAA Launch Initiative

Over the years, St Joseph of Cluny Secondary School, Killiney has enjoyed a strong sporting tradition. Students have been able to participate in sports like hockey, badminton and basketball. Now, thanks to the enthusiasm of some Cluny teachers they can play GAA. On Friday 29th September 2018 St Joseph of Cluny launched a GAA initiative in the School to promote girls participation in sport and in particular to encourage students to try GAA. The afternoon was enhanced with a visit from Dublin all Ireland medal winner, Amy Connolly. Amy addressed the whole school. She spoke passionately about her experience as a GAA Player and how it has helped her become the person she is today. Amy told the girls GAA has helped with her studies and her work. She emphasised the importance of finding something to be passionate about (whatever that may be) and sticking with it. This inspiring speech was met with loud cheers and was the perfect motivation for the friendly match that followed. A large number of students have already signed up to GAA where training takes place each week on Cuala GAA grounds. Judging from the reaction to the Irish Hockey team and record attendance at this year’s Ladies All Ireland, Women’s sport is becoming more and more popular. Let’s hope this as well as the GAA initiative on Friday will encourage more students to take part in sport.
