 National Schools Annual Tournament

Fr. O’Brien Annual Cup & Shield Hurling Tournament

Joe & Anne O’Connell (nee. Coleman) Annual Camogie Cup Tournament

Bernie Moran Annual Camogie Shield Tournament

The time of year has come around again for the 6th year of the Fr. O’Brien Cup & Shield  tournament and this year in conjunction with Abbeyknockmoy Camogie Club the inaugural school tournaments for girls will also commence.

A cup in memory of the late Joe & Anne O’Connell (nee Coleman) and a Shield Plaque in the memory of the late Bernie Moran have being kindly sponsored by the  Coleman/O’Connell family and Sean Moran and family for the tournament and an apt. way to honour their memory.

In the boys competition we will be fielding three teams, namely Monivea, Newtown and Crumlin/Annagh with Brierfield opting out not having the necessary numbers to field this year and in the girls competition they will be fielding four teams with Brierfield included.

In consultation with the camogie members it has been  decided based on numbers the following rules will apply to this year’s competition

  • Boys teams to consist of nine players  (limited 7 subs   
  • Girls team to consist of seven players (limited to 6 subs)
  • Each team to play each other in a round robin to decide rankings for cup & shield (2pts for a win and 1pt for a draw)
  • In the event of teams tied after preliminary round play –off’s will take place 
  • Games will be of 20 minute per half duration for boys and 15 minutes per half for girls.
  • All games played in Abbey Club pitch with club organising Refs, umpires and linesmen.
  • The 2 Camogie matches to commence concurrently  at 6.00 sharp each evening followed at 6.40 with boys game. (note 2 pitches)

The following are the draws of the preliminary games and it is hoped the dates will not clash with other events, in any case we will try and accommodate all schools.
