Wellbeing

Positive mental health contributes to our overall wellbeing and is experienced when we can realise our abilities, cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and fruitfully, and make a contribution to the entire school community.

Sporting Excellence

Connacht Colleges Junior Football Champions 2019


On Tuesday March 5th a rain sodden Elphin GAA ground was the venue for an enthralling Connacht Colleges Junior Football Final between Abbey College Boyle and Strokestown. The proverbial game of two halves was certainly the case today with Strokestown dominating the first half and Abbey College the second. However, the outstanding individual performance of Daire Cregg who shot 1-9 was to be the ultimate difference between the sides and Abbey College prevailed to win the cup by two points.

Abbey Community College is delighted to have been chosen as one of the first schools in Ireland to offer PE as a Leaving Cert subject.
