The Dan Donovan Theatre is an integral part of the college building. Meetings, talks and lectures take place here on a regular basis. The school play is produced here. Recent Productions have included Philadelphia Here I Come, Sieve and Ten Angry Men. Last years play All My Sons, staged to very large audiences was a great success. The Theatre is named after former Deputy Principal and long time patron of the arts here in Cork, Mr. Dan Donovan.
The college rugby pitches are in Wilton just a short distance from the school. There are four full playing fields with large off pitch training areas, there is a floodlight training area for the dark winter months, fully equipped changing and shower area complete with ice baths.
Upstairs there is a meeting area and shop. We of course are constantly looking to improve and expand facilities.
