Tipperary Education and Training Board was formed in July 2013 following the amalgamation of North Tipperary and South Tipperary VECs. Following the formation of the county wide education and training statutory body, it was decided to form a Sport and Cultural Council in January 2014. The Council comprised of:
Mr. James Williams (Scoil Ruain, Killenaule);
Mr. Ruaidhri Devitt (St. Ailbe’s School, Tipperary);
Ms. Brigid Harmon (Newport College);
Mr. PJ O’Connell (Coláiste Mhuire, Thurles) and
Mr. John McCarthy (Coláiste Dún Iascaigh, Cahir).
The aim of the Sports and Cultural Council is to organise competitions between the Tipperary ETB schools to give them the platform to display their talents and create their own identity.
Competitions are being held each academic year since 2014/15 between Tipperary ETB Schools in Hurling, Football, Ladies Football, Camogie, Soccer, Table Quiz, Creative Writing, Basketball and the Talent Search competition

The competition has captured the imaginations of the Schools and has been a fantastic success. Videos of each of the finalists can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
