With over 650 affiliated schools north and south of the border, the Irish Schools' Athletics Association is a cross-community organisation and this ethos has helped create many valuable contacts and lasting friendships throughout the island of Ireland.

The Irish Schools' Athletics Association programme includes:

  • Cross-country - February/March
  • Track & field - April, May, June
  • Combined events competitions - September

Each competition is followed by a Schools' International between England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. These Schools' Internationals have been a stepping stone to greatness for generations of Irish athletes from Ronnie Delaney to Paul Hession.
