Coláiste Muire has a long tradition of basketball in the school. Coláiste Muire teams have achieved much success at County and National level in both girls’ and boys’ competitions.

This success has continued to current times. In 2019, our girls’ under 19 team reached the All-Ireland semi final. Our boys’ under 16 team won the Cork championship and narrowly lost the Subway All-Ireland schools’ cup final in Dublin.
