Secondary Teams Association

To replace the Secondary Colleges Competition a group of six Brothers’ Colleges established the Secondary Teams Association on April 2, 1909, and started competing in 1910. The names of these Colleges remain unknown. At the time football and cricket were the only sports offered. It was not until 1914 that regular matches (fixtures) were drawn up. Athletics was still provided by the St Patrick’s Day sports until the early 1930s.
