For a lot of students, football is a chance to take a break from their studies, to relax, have fun and interact with their friends and fellow students on the football field. We believe football helps to contribute to better physical, social and mental health for all involved.
Many titles have been won at the school, but as was once said: “Football is not about winning or losing, but apart taking part and the enjoyment people get from it”.


Ladies Football

Ladies football was first set up here in 1994 by Sean Dineen, a 6th year student at the time. It was taken over the following year by Mr. Clark and Ms. Woods, and teachers continue to train the teams after school.

Since it was established nearly 15 years ago, ladies football here in Rathmore has flourished. As each year goes by, there is always a high interest and participation in ladies football. There are three ladies teams in the school – first years, juniors and seniors. In all these groups there has been great success. The junior and senior teams have had vast success at VEC level, and the school has the highest number of VEC titles in the county. However, in order to try and give students a higher quality game and a greater challenge, the school is now focusing solely on college competitions. The first years have won Munster blitzes and an All Ireland blitz. The junior team have won one county college title, and have twice been Munster semi-finalists. The senior team here at Scoil Phobail Sliabh Luachra have been honoured to win two county college titles, and have been Munster finalists also.

The school is very proud of its female footballers such as Jacinta Murphy, Aoife O Sullivan and Caroline Reen who have all gone on to represent their county at senior level.
