Clubs in Mary I
There are plenty of Clubs in Mary I that cater for most of the sporting interests of MIC students, both on a serious level and for those who are playing just for the craic. Mary I have been quite successful over the past few years in winning national titles in various sporting outings.
The Badminton club is growing in MIC. It isn't an exclusive club for the world's sportiest people, it's the total opposite! It's a club for everyone to take part in. You will be surprised how quickly you will pick it up and we guarantee that you will enjoy yourself. It is also a great way to relieve the stress caused by the hectic life in Mary I, or even to achieve those resolutions of losing a few pounds and getting healthy!
You do not need a horse of your own to join this club. The Mary I Equestrian Club caters for riders of all levels and has a strong ethos of enjoyment and participation. They attend horse-riding lessons on a weekly basis and cater for beginners, intermediates and advanced! They also attend the Intervarsities where they compete in show-jumping and dressage competitions but they still make time for a few nights out!
Pretty straight forward what the GAA club is, really. Whether you play on the Fresher’s team or the senior team, from hurling to football to camogie you should sign up to this club to experience the more social side of it all. It gives all involved a chance to bask in the glory of the great successes Mary I has had across the board when it comes to GAA.
Last year marked the beginning of a brand new club in Mary I – the MIC Men’s rugby team. In its first year the team reached the finals of the Munster College 10’s, a phenomenal result for such a new team. This year the team will link up with Old Crescent rugby club who will provide training facilities, coaches and a meal for all players who come out trainings. The team will be competing in the Munster Rugby Colleges League and Cup so for any MIC Men who wish to keep up the rugby and meet other like-minded lads I would highly recommend for you get involved!
Self-explanatory, if you play soccer this is the place for you. Competing in intervarsities each year the MIC soccer goes from strength to strength, with national titles becoming more regular. Teams are split into Freshers and Seniors so you can join at your level. In 2012 MIC reached the finals of the Collingwood Cup, Ireland’s premier University championship.
