Coláiste Pobail Acla has a long tradition with Gaelic football and it is the sport of choice for a huge number of students at the school.
Coláiste Pobail Acla caters for all age-groups and has both boys and girls teams who pride themselves on working hard and developing their football skills. Each team is trained by a member of staff, with development officers from Mayo GAA also offering their skills in coaching the next generation of Mayo footballers. Local clubs are also to be commended with the fantastic work they are doing in fostering talent in our area.
Our students enter into both Mayo and Connacht competitions in addition to blitz competitions which are held throughout the school year.
