Another feature of the YAC’s is the running of the Leinster Schools Finals, which is the next stage in Schools competition after the County rounds.
Winning teams from the County rounds progress to the Leinster competition which is broken down into 3 Divisions from 1 to 3.
There are separate competitions for boys & girls teams and age-groups are U14, U16 & U19. The Leinster rounds take place in January & February and are usually in a round-robin format with semis & finals if applicable. The winners of Divisions 1 & 2 will advance to the All-Ireland Finals.
