Step up for Connacht
- Is Connacht your home province?
- Are you an experienced and well-equipped hillwalker / mountaineer?
- Can you self-navigate confidently through rugged and exposed terrain in any weather using a hardcopy paper map and compass?
- Would you like to represent Connacht in an all-Ireland sport?
If you answered yes to all four of the above questions, we invite you to #StepUpForConnacht in the All-Ireland Hillwalking Provinces Championship. For a chance to become a member of your province's Sport Hillwalking team, you must take part in the All-Ireland Hillwalking Individuals Championship (click here for participation instructions).
Please note that we will soon be introducing a new and more streamlined competition format for 2022.
Find out when the current or upcoming championships are taking place by visiting our sports competition status page. From 2022, the normal Sport Hillwalking season is scheduled to start on 1st March and end on 31st October each year.
In early November, the five highest point-scoring individuals representing Connacht will be identified as the province's official Sport Hillwalking team in the All-Ireland Hillwalking Provinces Championship. Their scores added together will become the province's overall score for the year. A province must be represented by at least 2 individuals to qualify as a team.
To represent Team Connacht, you must also be representing one of its 5 county teams:
