Step into the vibrant tapestry of sports history at Delapré Abbey, where athleticism and heritage intertwine seamlessly. With a legacy steeped in sporting tradition, the grounds of Delapré Abbey have been a playground for enthusiasts for centuries.

From the days of Miss Mary Bouverie, on the tennis courts to the spirited competitions of cricket and hockey, sports have always been at the heart of Delapré Abbey’s story.

As the years unfolded, the grounds echoed with the cheers of rugby and football matches, the twang of archery bows, and the exhilarating pace of Gaelic football and hurling.

Join us as we celebrate the enduring spirit of sportsmanship and recreation at Delapré Abbey, where the legacy of athleticism continues to thrive, inviting all to partake in the joy of movement and competition amidst the beauty of our historic surroundings.
