Welcome to Loreto Abbey Sport
We in Loreto Abbey, see sport as an essential part of a holistic education.
We can now offer our students the use of a large multi-purpose sports hall, a dance studio and a fitness gym in addition to an external astro-turf and basketball court.
Four hundred students are involved in team sports. Sixteen teams represent us at various levels in hockey in the Leinster Leagues, South Dublin Leagues and Loreto League. Such a spread of teams allows students of all levels of ability to enjoy playing the game.
Eleven basketball teams play in both the Loreto and South Dublin Leagues and we regularly feature in national finals.
Other sporting opportunities include Tennis, Athletics, Cross Country, GAA, Volleyball, Badminton, Table Tennis and Fencing. Teams are also entered in Loreto and regional competitions in Sailing, Swimming and Golf for those involved in these sports outside of school.
After school, there is a programme of activities specifically designed but not exclusively for those who don’t like team sports. Included in this programme are Zumba, Dance, Aerobic and Martial Arts.
The fitness gym is supervised and open from 8.00 a.m. and closes at 5.30 p.m.
