Mercy Sports Council
Our Sports Council are a group of 20 senior students that help organise sports clubs and events throughout the school year. It is their role to promote healthy living among our school community.
Hockey has a long established tradition here and our teams are regularly involved in League Finals.There are four hockey teams - Two senior teams and two junior teams.
Mercy compete in a number of Athletics competitions throughout the school year. At the Meath Athletics Finals held in Claremount Stadium in April last, 3 of our relay teams all won gold! We have also had over 40 athletes represent Mercy in the North Leinster Athletics Competition in Santry this year.
During the first term our 1st year students with the help of the Sports council choreograph a dance. This culminates with a fabulous performance on Open Night. It is always a great showpiece.
We have currently three Camogie teams - Senior, Junior and under 14's. This year our Senior team reached the Leinster quarter final where they were narrowly beaten by Scoil Criost Ri, Portlaoise.
