All Ireland Schools (Boys) Hockey Championship
The All Ireland Schools (Boys) Hockey Championship is an annual competition involving the strongest schools affiliated to the Irish Hockey Association. The competition is held in the Autumn term of each school year. The current holder is St. Andrew's College, Dublin.
The venue of the competition is on a three year rota between Leinster, Munster and Ulster.
The competition began in the 1982-83 school year. It was initially dominated by schools from Ulster, with the first fourteen winners coming from that province. The monopoly was finally broken in 1996-97, when Newpark School from Dublin became the first winners from Leinster.
Sixteen teams compete in the finals. The teams are drawn into four pools with four teams each. Each team plays the other three teams in their group once. Each group winner then play one of the other group winners in a semi-final match. The two semi-final winners then play each other in the final. The winner of the final is presented with the Tasmanian Shield.
