2014/2015

 

·        57 schools will participate in Boys Football (6 competitions)

 

·        40 schools will participate in Girls Football (  4  competitions)

 

·        28 schools will participate in Hurling (4 competitions)

 

·        20 schools will participate in Camogie (3 competitions)

 

·        The group stages of our Boys and Girls Football competition have now been completed. As 3 of the 1 0 Boys and Girls football competitions proved to have been very onesided we have arranged to have 3 Shield competitions. These competitions will be played in the spring.

 

·        Our Hurling and Camogie competitions will be played in Spring.

 

·        All our finals (19) will be played after school in one week in May in Cusack Park, Mullingar.

 

·        The successful introduction of blitzes played in a Go Games format for 3rd/4th classes has enhanced the entry levels for all our competitions. This year we have played football blitzes for Third/Fourth classes. These blitzes are non competitive. Teams are made up by mixing players from the participating schools.

 

·        In 2015 we will be arranging a 5 a side competition. This will be done to encourage the smaller schools who feel that they do not have sufficient numbers the opportunity to take part in Cumann na mBunscol competitions.

 

·        We have found that recent improvements to the way we group schools for our competitions has resulted in a broader spread of teams reaching our play off stages. In the last 3 years a significant number of new schools have appeared on our trophies.

 

·        Cumann na mBunscol na hIarmhí also supports clusters of schools who come together to compete against each other in local competitions. Two of the more successful local competitions are the Marita Stone Competition and the St. Colmans competition aimed at third and fourth class competitions. Most of these competions are run with the help of local transition year students who act as referees and umpires.

 

·        Cumann na mBunscol na hIarmhí  has very strong links with the Westmeath County Board. In particular we work  very closely with Noel Delaney their games officer. One of Noel’s latest initiatives is to promote one wall handball competitions in the county.
