Cross Country Trials

Well done to everyone who took part in our Cross Country trials this morning in testing conditions.

The level of effort and determination shown by all participants was very high in what was a new type of event for the majority of our pupils.

A team will now be drawn up to represent the school at the Limerick Primary Schools Cross Country event in October.

Limerick Primary Schools Athletics

Over 40 pupils from the school took part in the Limerick Primary Schools Athletics in UL on Thursday.

With strong performances in all events our boys and girls did fantastically well in this team based competition. The boys team placed second in their category while the girls finished third. Both teams were only a handful of points away from higher placings. Huge credit is due to both teams who gave every race or long jump 100% in a outing where a lot of waiting is involved before participation. Well done to all!

Athletics & Hurling in the Sun

Herbertstown NS participated in two events today in beautiful May sunshine.


Over 40 pupils travelled to Ennis to take part in the Limerick Primary school athletics while our school’s hurlers competed in the South Cumann na mBunscol hurling blitz in Martinstown.


Limerick Primary Schools Athletics

 Stellar performances at the Primary School Athletics in Limerick.


A 44 strong team departed for the University of Limerick this morning for the Limerick Primary School Athletics.

Our boys and girls teams participated in events like the 100, 200 and 400 metres as well as the long jump and a series of relays. The girls team performed admirably in a keenly contested category. The boys category was equally close with the result going down to the very last race. In a nail biting finish our over 12 relay team produced a fantastic team display to secure first place.  Massive congratulations to every boy and girl who took part, they did their school proud.
