St. Brigid’s students have had many successes in various competitions.


Poetry Aloud
“Poetry Aloud” is a poetry speaking competition organised by the National Library of Ireland. The competition has two stages: regional heats which are held during October here in St. Brigid’s; and the semi-final and final which are held in the National Library of Ireland, in Dublin.
The regional heats of the competition are always a great success, with students from all over the Kerry region taking part.
There are three categories: Junior (1st and 2nd years); Intermediate (3rd and 4th years); Senior (5th and 6th years).

St. Brigid’s Secondary School has a long tradition and reputation for school basketball. We are currently playing in Senior A, Cadet A and second year and first year A dimensions.

There is a strong tradition of dramatic performance in  St. Brigid's. 

Drama workshops form an important part of the curriculum, for instance 2nd year Music students pictured below taking part in one such workshop as part of the Killarney Creative Cluster.

In recent years, the school has collaborated with St. Brendan's College to produce a number of memorable shows. 

In 2018, a sell out production of 'Our Day Out' by William Russell was performed for a number of nights at Killarney racecourse.

In 2017, 'Let's Go Dancing' was a huge success, while 2015 saw a successful production of 'Bugsy'.

Bugsy - December 2015

The musical 'Bugsy Malone', a cross school venture organised by the Music departments of St Brigid's and St. Brendan's, proved to be a wonderful success. Huge crowds attended the show at the racecourse in Killarney across the four day run of the musical, and the professionalism of the cast and crew alike can only be described as inspirational. Massive credit is due to all involved in the planning, rehearsals and production of the show, and particular congratulations to the 100 Transition Year students from both schools, whose dedication has truly paid off. The pictures below give a flavour of some of the performances, and more photos from the production can be seen in our gallery section.


St Brigid's has a long tradition of participation in Athletics, and participate in competitions each year.

Gaelic Football in St.Brigid's goes back to 1996 when we first entered a Junior & Senior ladies team in the Kerry Schoolgirls league.Since then we have won numerous Kerry titles. In 2004 we won the Munster Junior A title beating Beara, Cork and lost out in the final to Edenderry, Offaly by 3 pts. The same year we lost the All Ireland Senior C final to Sligo.
Teams are coached by Michael Horan and Paudi Breen and training takes place on Wednesday evenings between 4 - 5pm in Knockreer.
