O'Dea High School

Irish Cup

O’Dea has a longstanding tradition of academic and athletic success.  This tradition is grounded in a unique competitive spirit which drives O’Dea students to work hard to succeed and win with honor.  O’Dea’s Irish Cup is awarded each year to the House that demonstrates excellence in five areas: Academics, Service, Spirit, Citizenship and House Games. The goal of the Irish Cup is to promote healthy competition that encourages academic success, boosts spirit, and enhances school pride.


Congratulations to Kilkenny House for winning the 2018-2019 Irish Cup for the third consecutive year! Under the leadership of House Dean Joe Cronin and Senior House Captain Mishael Powell, Kilkenny House finished 9 points ahead of second-place Limerick House. It was a close battle all year and the Irish Cup ceremony was just one highlight of a fun House Spirit Day full of brotherhood and connectedness within our O’Dea community.
