Thank you for your interest in the SPAR5s. We are delighted to offer boys and girls from 4th, 5th and 6th class the opportunity to participate in this fun, blitz day format competition.
The programme involved 31,728 students last year with 1,528 schools participating.
Local and Regional competitions will begin in late February and run throughout March and April. The Provincial Finals will take place in early and mid-May while the National Finals will be held on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 in the Aviva Stadium, Dublin.
