– Junior refers to U-16 or Juvenile grade – Both Junior and U-16 terms used.
– The term ‘Post Primary Football’ used to be called ‘Colleges Football’.
– U-14 used to be called ‘Juvenile’ and is now ‘2nd Year Championship’ since 2020.
– Separate Vocational Schools competition ended after 2013 and titles thereafter all part of same Post Primary.
– Johnny McGee from Cashel was Captain of the Leinster Colleges SFC winning Belcamp College team in 1965.
– Ray McGahern from Granard won a Leinster Colleges JFC title with Franciscan College Gormanstown in 1965.
– Brendan O’Reilly (Colmcille), Johnny McGee (Cashel) and Luke Baxter (Slashers) won a Leinster Colleges SFC title with Belcamp College in 1965.
– When Longford won 1957 Inter-County Vocational Schools title, the competition included Leinster, Connacht and Ulster teams but there was no All-Ireland Series at that time as the competition was not recognised by GAA authorities until 1960. Twelve counties took part in 1957. This title is closer to an All-Ireland title than a provincial one hence is categorised as All-Ireland title on this website.
