We are approaching GAA Championship season again (thank God!) and the Primary Game selection process will be starting again, very soon. This year the schools are being asked to co-operate fully with us. We are asking each school to send one child, and one child ONLY, to Primary Game Selection Days. That is the rules of the Primary Game, and we will be adhering very strictly to that rule, this year. THIS YEAR IF A SCHOOL SENDS MORE THAN ONE PLAYER, BOTH PLAYERS WILL BE IMMEDIATELY DISQUALIFIED FROM THE SELECTION PROCESS. We will be extremely firm on this issue, this season. It doesn’t always necessarily have to be the best player. It should be the child who deserves it most. There are many ways a school can choose their player: a school skills day, drawing from a hat, sending who you think has the best chance of making the final 11, sending the player who has shown the most improvement  etc.. The only exception will be Camogie. In this sport schools may send 2 players if they wish. Remember all Primary Game players must be in 6th class. A player may only be sent once, to one sport only. Example: A boy can’t be sent to football and hurling. Just He may only attend a trial in one code or the other. Same for camogie and ladies football. NB..  The Primary Game Selection days are as follows:


North Division Players: Thursday 15th March, at 4.15, in Cloughjordan.

Mid Division Players: Friday 16th March, at 4.15, in the Ragg.

West Division Players: Thursday 22nd March, at 4.15, in Golden.
