We are very fortunate in Scoil Mhuire to have great support from our local sports groups who work with us in exposing the children to as many different sporting activities as possible. Many of our children are members of Abbeyleix GAA Hurling & Camogie clubs, Ballyroan/Abbey Athletics, Portlaoise Gymnastics club to name just a few.

McDonald Family Visit School
There was great excitement recently when the McDonald Family from Ireland's Fittest Family paid a visit! We were delighted to welcome Martin, Breda, Kate & Cian who took time out of their busy schedule to come and talk to the children. The McDonald Family answered many questions from the children about their time on the show, their training schedule, signed autographs & posed for photographs with the children & the Active Flag Committee.
