Athletics gives students in St. Brigid’s the chance to compete in a variety of events throughout the school year. The main events in the Athletics are Cross Country and Track and Field. Some Track and Field events include 100m Sprint, Long Jump & Shot Putt. Not only is it a great form of exercise but Athletics also allows you to try something new so why not give it a go!
There are four age categories which are Minor, Junior, Intermediate and Senior. St. Brigid’s compete in the South Munster District and Kerry County for all events.
