Sport in the Academy
Junior 5-a-side soccer winners. Barbarian rovers are the winners with Espana runners up.
There has always been a huge commitment to sport in the Academy, a school which has had sportsmen such as Dr. Pat O’Callaghan, the Olympian hammer thrower, together with many other sportsmen among its famous past pupils.
Traditionally the Academy has produced winning hurling and gaelic football teams at all age levels and the team coaches, drawn from the staff have been unstinting in their work.
The Academy has also a long tradition (beginning with Bro. Simeon) in rugby and the school produces many winning teams.
Golf is another sport in which the school has fielded many winning teams at Munster and All Ireland levels.
Tennis is also well represented with teams at various age levels.
Basketball is yet another sports outlet for the students of the Academy.
Handball, Fishing and many other sports are included in the schools activities.
