Dublin GAA Juvenile update U13s & U14s

Sun, 26th July 2020

Mo Chairde,

CCC2 issued the revised juvenile fixture calendar for the resumption of juvenile activities on 25th June and per that schedule U13 & U14 activity will resume Saturday 22nd August with Hurling and Football activity commences the following week.

Before all activity was stopped Féile gradings had been issued and feedback received, so I attach details for the 7 Féile na nGael Divisions & 10 Féile Peil na nÓg Divisions. If your circumstances have changed and you need to withdraw a team, please advise the committee immediately. CCC2 hope to issue the Groups for each Divisional by next Friday 31st July.

Féile gradings

I also attach the recently issued regulations for Féile and U13 Grading Leagues.

Féile regulations

U13 grading League regulations

I wish to highlight a few regulations:

In all competitions the following will apply:

  • All competitions are 15 a-side, but where necessary a minimum of 13 aside can be played.
  • Both teams must play equal numbers and the MAXIMUM number available to both teams must be played e.g. if both sides have 14 then NO players are to be held back as substitutes. If a game has commenced with reduced numbers and additional player or players arrive, both teams must play the maximum number available i.e. 14 or 15.
  • For the U13 Grading League Divisions 11, 12 & 13 in both codes a minimum of 11 aside can be played

U14 competitions

  • CCC2 will run Féile Peil na nÓg & Féile na nGael competitions in the normal way but the games will be spread over several weekends
  • Panels (per code) shall consist of a maximum of 24 players. Under NO circumstances may a panel contain more than 24 players
  • No panel may include any more than 9 (Nine) players born in 2007 or thereafter i.e. maximum of 9 players on the panel who belong to any age group younger than Under 14. This regulation applies to all grades of Féile Peil na nÓg or Feile na nGael Cup and Shield Competitions.
  • The maximum number of Non-2006 players that can play on any match day is 3 (three). This regulation applies to all grades of Féile Peil na nÓg or Feile na nGael Cup and Shield Competitions.
  • The team panel for each Féile must be submitted by email to by 14/08/20 for Féile na nGael and 21/08/20 for Féile Peil na nÓg.
  • Before the start of each game, notwithstanding regulations 6, team mentors must hand their official list of (numbered) players to the referee, to include each player’s name in Irish and English, date of birth and GAA registration number. There can be no deviation from the named players from start to the finish of the competition.

The top two teams of each group shall qualify for semi-finals of the Cup. – 1st placed team in group A v 2nd placed teams in group B. The semi-finals of the Shield - 3rd placed team in group A v 4th placed teams in group B. If a neutral venue for Cup Finals not possible a draw will determine Home advantage for the Final. A draw for Home Advantage for each Shield Final will take place.

U13 competitions

Teams will complete the grading games issued at the start of the year for all Hurling and Football leagues. Your placing will determine divisional status for U14 in 2021. U13 games will not be deferred for participation of players in Féile competitions.

CCC2 recognise that Clubs normally use the grading leagues at the start of the season to determine if they can fulfil a normal full league programme. Note as per above for the U13 Grading League Divisions 11, 12 & 13 a minimum of 11 aside can be played. Please advise CCC2 if you need to withdraw a team. These leagues will not be amended and all remaining fixtures can be viewed at select age grade, code & division.

For U13 grading league games:

  • All fixtures must be played on the scheduled date.
  • §The “Summer Fixtures” regulation is suspended.
  • §No games can be played before Saturday 22nd August.

Yours in Sport, 


Damian Ó Murchú
