Rathnure is steeped in sporting tradition, down through history. Here in Rathnure N.S. we have created our own history in recent years. The school Rackard League teams have won various GAA honours, most recently making history to be the only school to win three mini 7s titles back to back (2017, 2018, 2019) and a Rackard League ‘B’ title (2018).
Wexford GAA also supply coaches during the year who provide excellent hurling and football sessions. The teachers run lunchtime leagues in both hurling and football. There is an excellent club/school link in Rathnure. ‘Hurling 365’ is just one example of this.
Enniscorthy Rugby Club visit our school for periods during the year to provide tag rugby sessions to the older classes (4th/5th/6th).
Every year the school enters the Rackard League Athletics (Bree Races). Students first must qualify from school heats, and then go onto represent us in Enniscorthy Sports Hub. We have had success in recent years with a number of individuals and teams reaching the finals.
Rathnure N.S. completes the aquatics strand of physical education in The Apex Leisure Centre New Ross. Students from 1st to 6th class take swimming lessons for 6 – 8 weeks where they learn a lifelong skill.
