About Irish Schools Basketball

Following Reorganisation of Irish Schools Basketball in the early 1990s there were 9 Regions in total accross the whole island. As well as playing Leagues at Grades from Senior (U19) to Cadet/Cadette (U16), Second Year (U15) and First Year (U14), which qualified Schools for the All-Ireland League Playoffs, there was a single-elimination (knockout) Cup played on an All-Ireland basis from Round 1, and Inter-Regional Representative Competitions.
