Presentation Brothers Cork
Presentation Brothers College



It's in our DNA.

We are a Rugby school and encourage all first years to play rugby for at least the first year. We run between 2 and 4 teams at every age grade, from U14 to U19. There is a huge commitment to rugby within the faculty, with 18 members of staff engaged in training everyday. This is supported by more than 30 volunteers  from within the body of parents and friends of Presentation College.

Alongside academic and other extra curricular group activities and sports, the boys get to truly understand and experience first hand the value of team work - by sharing hard work and effort, pain and glory. Building not just individual character strength, but growing as a unit.



Without commitment, hard work, hours and hours of training, repetition and a good deal of pain, there is no success in Rugby. These are valuable lessons the boys will carry into their future - be they careers in business, the arts, sciences or sports.

We do have great successes in Rugby which stem from the hard work, dedication and commitment from the students, the parents, the staff and the wider community. Our commitment and investment into Rugby has lead to a number of international players that started their careers and success at PBC.



It's OUR game...and it shapes us.
