The big day for Gaelic Football! Dublin will look to add to their haul of medals and will be there or there abouts on the day, but who else could make the cut and make a splash on the big day?

Who knows, maybe the tribes of Galway could sneak in there! Either way, it's sure to be some battle to lift the Sam Maguire Cup!

Social Activity Programme 

GCI offers a weekly activity social programme with many options to choose from. The activity programme is designed monthly, and some highlights may include cultural events across the city and county, practical workshops on various themes and topics from grammar clinics to CV preparation and Irish culture, volunteer opportunities or weekend trips to famous landscapes across Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way. The social activity programme enables students to enhance their learning experiences by practicing their English skills in the real world and getting to know other English students outside of the classroom.

Our main social activities are listed above and a more detailed breakdown of daily activities available in the school is available below. During the summer, students can book activities during the lunch break, Monday to Thursday in Halla Mor.
