TBC = To be confirmed; TBD = To be decided. Any omissions, errors etc. please Contact Us.

Please note the following guidelines and procedures: -

There will be no paper panel forms for 2015.  Instead, an on-line entry system will be available from March 2015.  Until the on-line entry system is available, entries can be submitted via email to Registrar, Veronica Finucane. Entry fees should be sent to Treasurer using the PDF or Excel form provided (or brought to the monthly county meeting). Competition entry fees remain €2 per participant.  There will be an adult gate charge at the athletics county finals in June 2015. Children no longer have to sign the Panel Sheets - it is the responsibility of area secretary to confirm identity, date of birth and address.

Remember that the cut-off date for Community Games is 31st July 2015 (i.e. participant must be under the age on 31st July). There are also minimum age limits for some competitions, so please take note of these in the rule book!

There is no longer any May National Festival. All National Finals take place over 2 weekends in August. Note the rule that at National Festival level, a competitor can only take part in one team event, one individual event plus one athletics relay/swimming squad event (cross country, marathon and mixed distance relays are classified as team events).

In exceptional circumstances a maximum of 2 team members may be replaced on teams qualified for nationals, but only where full panel form has been completed and valid reason(s) must be provided by county secretary.

Any errors, omissions etc. please Contact Us.

County Art and Model Making 2015 Print


The munstergroup Insurance Clare Community Games County Finals of the Art and Model Making Competitions, which were held at the Christian Brothers School, Ennis, on Saturday 7th Feb, attracted a very big entry with over three hundred competitors, from twenty-two Areas.


In the case of the Art Competition the Competitors had three hours, under supervision, to paint, draw, sketch or collage any Community Games activity. In the case of the Model Making Competitors they had to create, within three hours, a model out of any material which had to have a Community Games theme. The adjudication in both cases was based on Observation of events, Creativity and Originality, and Natural Ability.

The judges, Louise Houlihan, Clodagh Kelly and Siobhain Fawl had a difficult time selecting winners as the standard was extremely high. The County Co-Ordinator, Mrs Cecilia O'Sullivan, congratulated all the competitors for their efforts and participation and wished the winners every success at the National Finals in Athlone in August. She thanked the Judges, and all the Supervisors who helped to run off the Competition, the Area Secretaries and Teachers who promoted it locally, and Mr Darragh Glynn, Principal of Ennis C.B.S., for the use of the School and Mr Paraic Byrne.


The prizes will be presented to the Area Secretaries and Delegates at the next County Meeting on Tuesday, 3rd March, at 9 pm or possibly at the Area Secretary Registration Training session which takes place in the West County on Monday 9th Feb @ 8pm.
