School Events.


Rolestown NS entered the Dublin Primary School Basketball League and Cup this year. Both the boys’ and the girls’ teams won all of their league games and qualified for the Dublin County League Finals. This took place in the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght and both teams were victorious on the day. The boys’ team also qualified for the semi-final of the cup but were narrowly beaten. We are so proud of their commitment and achievements. Thank you to their coaches Mr. Loughlin and Ms. Ní Nailligh.

Girls Medal Presentations

Thank you to past pupil Sarah Manning who came to visit our girls football team and present them with their medals. Sarah is a committed football player, playing with her club, Fingal Ravens and her school team. She spoke to the girls about the commitment she puts into football, training numerous times a week alongside playing matches. 

Sarah also spoke to the girls about her memories of playing for Rolestown and ho she remembers making finals but unfortunately coming out the wrong side each time. Therefore, she was delighted to present the girls with their winning medals from the Cumann na mBunscoil final in Croke Park. The girls are now eagerly awaiting the start of the Fingal League competition in the springtime and we look forward to seeing what this fantastic squad of players can achieve.

















Boys Medal Presentations. 

We would like to thank our past pupil Dylan Kettle for coming in to present medals today. No only did Dylan bring in cups won by

Fingal Ravens in recent weeks, he was kind enough to answer all of the boys questions. It was a huge achievement for our tam to reach the

Cumann na mBunscol finals and play in Croke Park. The team showed great fighting spirit on the day even though the result did not go their way.

We are already looking forward to the Fingal League in the springtime.
