St. Pat’s has a long and proud tradition of promoting hurling in Galway City, and the school is the proud holder of numerous county titles in hurling.

Enjoyment of the game and developing and improving their skills are the main aims of the coaching undertaken in the school.

Training takes place in the school yard or at ‘The Swamp’ in the Claddagh every Thursday after school.

Players are drawn from city clubs Castlegar, Liam Mellows, Salthill-Knocknacarra and Rahoon Newcastle who all come together to play in the green and white of St Pats!

2nd class boys get an introduction to hurling with Gerry Spellman on Fridays.
