Hockey has traditionally been a major sport for the girls of Mount Sackville. Approximately 250 girls play hockey with 16 teams participating in Leinster or North Dublin leagues and cups. Training occurs every afternoon from 4-6pm and each team works with a dedicated coach.

Meet the Captains

Team captains are very important to the successful running of our hockey programme. They are the link between the coach and the players and wear their captain’s armbands with pride. Congratulations to all the captains who are doing an excellent job this year.

Captain's Report

Sports Captain's Report:

My name is Alex Murray Moran and I am 2015/2016 Sport Captain in Mount Sackville and the Vice Captain is Leanne Brosnan.
Since First Year, I have always been involved in sport in the school for example, hockey, badminton, tennis and gaa. Sport is my passion and I am so lucky to attend a school that values it as much as I do. I would encourage as many girls as possible to get involved in sport in Mount Sackville as it is not only good for your health but it is actually so much fun as well! I have made so many new friends over the years and most of them are through the sports teams I play on!
I feel so honoured to have been given this role and Im looking forward to working with the coaches, teachers and students in the coming year.

I was fortunate enough to represent Leinster hockey during the Easter break on a trip to the Netherlands. We participated in a tournament which consisted of qualified development squads from Germany, Belgium, England, the Netherlands, Ireland and Poland. The standard high and the competition was fierce but we managed to win three out of six matches and finish in the top half of the table. Leinster girls were able to bring back the fair play award to Ireland for our sportsmanship, enthusiasm and etiquette. It was a great experience,  personal achievement and honour for me to be able to put on a Leinster jersey and represent my province in another country.

Success for Senior 1s!

The first of 3 club matches against Weston Hockey Club for the team and turned out to be a raging success! The girls were fresh after a nice Christmas break and were ready to get back out on the field. With a score of 4-3, the team put up  a very good fight. Playing 3x20 minutes, it was a very close call. Goals from Sophie Power and Molly Donegan secured the win for Sackville at 4-3! It was a very physical and tight game against an extremely strong side of Weston but the Sackville ladies played an absolute stormer and sealed the win! Well done girls and keep up the hard work!!

Hockey trip to Malaga! 

Last November the senior hockey teams with girls from forth, fifth and sixth year of Mount Sackville embarked on the latest adventure to "Campo de Hockey El Retamar, La Estupa" Malaga, Spain for four intense days of training and matches. After an early start on Thursday morning and a long day of traveling we went straight into two matches against the local teams and despite our exhaustion we achieved stunning success in both! The trip consisted of a guided tour of beautiful Malaga city, team bonding, skills development, fun, swimming and lots of hockey! It was an unforgettable trip for everyone involved thanks to our coaches Simon Filgas (senior coach) Hilary Hurley (mountsackville hockey coordinator) and Sheila Carol (junior coach)
