Additional notes:
  • Parking: Parking at the Morton Stadium is limited and once the venue is at parking capacity you will have to find alternative parking. Please adhere to the instructions from the Gardaí and the stewards on duty.
  • Rubbish:Each school is responsible for cleaning their area. Any school that doesn’t comply will be fined and may not be invited to enter next year.
  • Complaints:Please note all our officials on the day are volunteers and we depend on their good will to help with the running of the events. The decision of the judge is final and communication should be made with committee members only (Personnel in Cumann na mBunscol T-shirts).
  • Teachers please be vigilant that only children competing are allowed inside the track area. Teachers who are not assisting officials SHOULD NOT be in the track area and will be asked to leave and their school may be disqualified.
  • Teacher supervision is essential all day and especially around the toilet area at the back of the uncovered stand and the green hill area. This leads onto a car park- children SHOULD NOT be permitted to roll down it.
  • Only accredited photographers who have been previously approvedby the committee are permitted to take pictures inside the track area. While teachers are welcomed during cup and medal presentations we would ask that they leave the track promptly and do not obstruct the judges view.
