Mount St. Michael enters three teams each season in the Post Primary Schools’ Championship: Under 14’s, Juniors (U-16) and Seniors (U-20).
Through regular training and competitive matches, the players learn about the importance of teamwork, selflessness, friendship, physical fitness and mental strength.
The 2009/2010 season saw Mount St. Michael's Senior team win a first ever All-Ireland Schools Football Final when they captured the Tesco Senior B Post Primary Schools Championship. This success was just reward for a remarkable team. Mount St. Michael football teams are always very competitive and wear their jersey with prid.! The school is benefitting hugely from the wonderful development of the football pitch which cost €100,000.
The pitch is now the envy of many a school in Connacht.
Mount St. Michael footballers have won the prestigious Connacht Post Primary Schools Player of the Year award.
Sarah Tierney captured the title when she captained the Senior All Ireland winning team in 2010 and Aimee Bell won the coveted award in 2011. Many thanks to Mr. Ger Slattery and Fr. Mike Murphy for their hard work and commitment to developing Gaelic Football in our school.
