Step up for Munster
- Is Munster 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 Munster in an all-Ireland sport?
If you answered yes to all four of the above questions, we invite you to #StepUpForMunster in the All-Ireland Hillwalking Provinces Championship. For a chance to become a member of your province's Sport Hillwalking team, you must compete in the All-Ireland Hillwalking Championships as an individual (click here for participation instructions).
Find out when the current or upcoming championships are taking place by visiting our sports competition status page. The 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 Munster 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 Munster, you must also be representing one of its 6 county teams:
