Archery in St. Columba's involves a small but dedicated group of pupils. Training on a Thursday and Saturday afternoons for Indoor competitions during Michaelmas.
We have been fortunate to host many of the National Schools Archery Competitions due to the excellent facilities available in the College.
In recent years a notable success was Franz Wiess who although German by birth qualified as a school pupil to represent Ireland in the Euronations Competition.
Archery as a sport is demanding by nature. Endurance, Concentration, Patience,Control, Stamina are just some of the skills required. The sport contributes greatly to the overall development of the individual.
