• Basketball

    Both basketball teams had a fantastic year this year, they had many amazing matches throughout the year and everyone at school is very proud of the team.

    U16 Basketball

    On 11th January 2023, the under 16’s boys basketball team competed in their final match against Harolds Cross ETSS.

    The boys started off strong, however they fell down at times, they made a fantastic effort with some amazing shots made by Lucas Armengol Garcia, leaving the first quarter with 6 points to Cabinteely and 10 to HCETSS.

    At the start of the second quarter some substitutions for the team were made with some fresh players coming on. Again, a good defence was put up. However, HCETSS were able to get in a couple of shots, ending the second half with 8 –19 to HCETSS.

    Once more, at the beginning of the third quarter, Cabinteely played very well, although the opposition put up a good fight, ending the third quarter with a score of 8 – 21 to HCETSS.

    In the final quarter final substitutions were made which had a massive impact on the team. With a final burst of motivation the boys put up their best performance and scored a couple more baskets, concluding the game with a score of 14 – 23, crowning HCETSS as the winners of the final.

    The boys played very well and played with much determination and spirit.

    U19 Basketball

    A notable performance from the u19 team this year was their impressive win against Sandymount Park on the 16th of November.

    The first quarter started out well and at a steady pace. The boys were playing good against a pretty evenly matched team and putting on a good performance. Some subs were made and a tough second quarter began. It seemed Sandymount had upped their game, but it wasn’t anything Cabinteely couldn’t handle. In the 3rd quarter Cabo pulled ahead and from there on cruised to victory, with them playing extremely well in the 4th quarter, dominating the court.

    The game ended 14-26 to Cabinteely, one of the best performances from the u19 team this year.

  • Football

    Under 15 Boys Football

    South Dublin: Winners beat St. Johns De La Salle Ballyfermot 4-0 in the final.
    Leinster: Semi finalists lose to eventual winners Clara Scoil Naomh Padraig.
    Dublin Metropolitan: Semi-finalists lose 14-13 on penalties after a great performance and game which ended 4-4 after extra time.

    Under 17 Football

    We did very well in the Junior League where we topped our group with a 100% record with victories at home to Rockbrook Park School, Rathfarnham 6-0 and also away to St. John’s College, Ballyfermot 7-1.

    Confidence was high in the camp heading into the league semi-final in mid-December against Marian College, Ballsbridge. We were at home but got off to a shocking start conceding twice in the opening 10 minutes.
    We battled well in the second half to draw 4-4 but sadly we lost 4-1 in the penalty shootout. This was a high opportunity missed to take silverware back to Cabinteely as Marian College were 7-0 victors in the final.

    Transition Year Cup

    There is only one competition for Transition Years, the Leinster TY cup.

    Our 1st round match against St. Michaels College of Ailesbury Road was an all-time classic. There were 4 lead changes and we prevailed 4-3 after extra-time.

    In the 2nd round we played St. MacDara’s C.S of Templeogue and this was another 7 goal thriller. Due to injuries we’d only a squad of 13 for the game and all were needed as we got two injuries in the first half, leaving us with no substitutions for the remainder of the game.

    We totally dominated for 80 minutes and were cruising to victory, leading 4-1 with 10 minutes to go. MacDara’s then scored twice in 5minutes to leave us 4-3 ahead. Our lapse in concentration made the final 5 minutes much more nervous than it should have been for those in attendance. Overall this was an incredible performance from everyone involved. We were down numerous starters but it showed the vast talent we had in our squad and that the greatest ability is availability.

    In the quarter finals we played Clonkeen College in a very competitive game but were defeated 2-1. It was a solid performance but missed opportunities cost us dear in the end.

    Girls Football

    We had an U15 and an U20 team in the school this year. Both arefantastic teams with girls who dedicate themselves to sport both inand outside of school. Both teams competed in the South Dublin regiongroup stages. Despite excellent efforts, the U15 team failed to make itout of a very strong group. The U20 team made it to the division 3playoffs but left the competition at this stage.

    Cabinteely Cup

    The Cabinteely Cup is an inter-year championship within the school organised by The Student Representative Council (SRC). The Cup’s ultimate aim is to bring students from all years together to have fun!

    The matches were held during breaktime from 12:00 onwards, each being 12minutes a side. The teams consisted of 9/10 players per team with each team having two managers. The matches were all very tough due to the high level of talent on each team.

    The Isla of Man, Saudi Arabia, Australia and South Korea made it to the Semifinals and, after two tough matches, Australia and Isle of Man ultimately made it to the Finals.

    The final game was held on 15th May and was a ticketed event for the entire school, each ticket cost 2euro and all proceeds were donated to the Irish Cancer Society. With that being said, the winner of the final was Australia, a big congratulations to everyone on the team! You all played amazing!

  • Gaelic football

    Our Gaelic football teams train after school once a week and take part in interschool competition each year.  All students are welcome to whether or not they have played before.  We have a new school Gaelic kit for 2023-24.

  • Running Club

    A running group is offered for all students starting with the aim of an eight week training period to take students from their first run right up to their first 5km park run in the local area.

    Running not only has excellent health benefits but it also contributes to increased mental well-being, concentration and improved sleep. There is also the opportunity to train and compete in the Leinster track and field and cross-country school’s competition held each year at the Morton Stadium in Santry.

  • Sports Day

    Sports Day was held on 9th May 2023 for the entire school. After lunchtime all students made their way down to the Kilbogget Astro and Sports Hall to partake in the events of the day, which included races, football and basketball challenges, inflatables. The students cycled through the events and had a shot at each event. There was also an ice cream truck which students could purchase treats from. Overall, it was a very exciting day which everyone really enjoyed!

    A big thanks to all who helped out, especially Mr. Murphy!

  • Volleyball/Spikeball

    A fun and social volleyball club after school every Tuesday.

    It’s a chance to mix with other students in the school and make new friends. Students of all years, ages and abilities ranging from absolute beginners to experienced players are welcome.
