Gaelic Football 

Gaelic Football has a proud tradition in Coláiste Rís. Teams from Coláiste Rís have had success in Louth, North Leinster and Leinster competitions over the years. One of the schools most famous days was when we won the Leinster Senior Colleges "A" Championship in 1985, under our former name Dundalk C.B.S. This was no small achievement for a school with a student population of our size.

Every year a select number of players are picked from the school to play on the Dundalk Colleges combined team. This team competes in the Leinster Senior "A" football championship.

The senior football team compete in the Lennon Cup (Louth competition) every year. This competition has a great significance to the school as it is named after Brendan Lennon, a former student, who tragically died while training with the school team on the Fairgreen.
We also participate in competitions at U16, U14 and first year levels. In recent years interest in ladies gaelic football has grown in the school and we have entered ladies teams in local competitions.

There is always great competition for places on the school teams and we also have the vast experience of a number of quality coaches on hand, to improve all aspects of each player's game. 

The teachers involved in coaching gaelic football in Coláiste Rís include Mr. Moylan, Mr. Holland, Miss Meaney, Miss Lavin, Mr. McCarthy and Miss Greene.
