In 1993 Dalriada 1st XI hockey team won the Hockey Schools Cup, the 1st XV rugby team reached the final of the Rugby Schools Cup and the senior girls badminton team won the Ulster League, the Ulster Cup and the All Ireland Cup. Volleyball has also enjoyed great success in recent years including numerous All Ireland Championships.

To celebrate sporting success, all former Dalriads are warmly invited to attend and watch former greats in action. At 9.30am there will be an exhibition hockey match at the Joey Dunlop Centre.

At the same time volleyball will get under way in the school Sports Hall. At 11am players and spectators from all sports are invited to attend the Headmaster’s Rugby match on the school rugby pitches.

It is hoped a large crowd will attend to support this event giving former Dalriads the opportunity to reminisce about their sporting days at Dalriada.
