There has always been a strong culture in St. Colman’s College of facilitating, encouraging and affirming those who partake of sporting activities. There is something for everyone and in recent times pupils have represented their school in hurling, football, soccer, rugby, basketball, tennis, badminton, golf, pitch and putt, swimming, eventing, athletics, handball, rowing, tennis and table tennis. Pupils' successes in sports outside school such as cycling, sailing, swimming etc. are also publicly lauded. It is fair to say that a culture of 'taking part' is fostered in the school.
