Birr will be playing in the Division Two of the National Feile while St. Rynaghs will be playing in Division Four. 

Connacht GAA will in 2018 be hosting the national festival of Under 14 hurling and camogie known as Feile na nGael. In 2014 Connacht GAA hosted Feile Peil na n-Og in which most clubs in Connacht hosted and were involved in the festival of under 14 football.

The same will happen in 2018 as close on 60 hurling clubs from the province and 12 more from Westmeath and Longford will be involved. There will also be close on 50 camogie clubs from the province hosting camogie clubs from all over Ireland. The dates for Feile na nGael 2018 are June 8th/9th and 10th.
