In September 2012, two past students from Riversdale Community College received Gold medals from President Michael D Higgins in Dublin Castle. Naomi Marie Rose, (Ongar), and Gavin Smullen, (Ladyswell), were the first Riversdale students to accomplish Gold.
The local qualifying rounds of the Sporting Fingal Cup saw Riversdale’s senior girls’ team win four out of their six games and drawing the other two. This enabled us to qualify first for the finals day on the 19th May 2009. The girls demonstrated some quality football on the day with Megan O’ Reilly winning player of the overall tournament.
