League Organisation

The SESGB League was one of nine regional school leagues in Ireland, with the winners (and in some cases runners-up and 3rd place) qualifying for the All-Ireland League Playoffs. Leagues were divided into “A”, “B”, “C” and “D” based on the size of the school, and there were U19, U16, 2nd Year and 1st Year Grades. There was no “A” League in SESGB in 2015-16, therefore making the “B” League the highest level in the South East.
