10. The use of fake tan, make-up, bun wigs, full wigs and solo costumes are strictly forbidden in Bungrád and Túsgrád competitions. This is a Connacht ruling and we would appreciate anyone travelling from other regions to abide by this rule.

11. Bungrád and Túsgrád competitions are confined to competitors who have never won 1st place for the dance specified in any registered competition in any other grade or under any age limit.

12. Meangrád competitions are confined to competitors who have never previously won 1st place in Meangrád or Ardgrád in any other registered competitions for the dance specified for that competition or in any solo competition designated a Championship or Príomh Comórtas under the maximum age limit specified for that Meangrád or under a higher age limit.

13. Preliminary Championships (8-9 years upwards) are confined to competitors who have not been placed in the top 5 in an Open Championship judged by 3 or more adjudicators. The
dancer must not have qualified for the Worlds in 2017 or 2018 (with the exception of the boys who are eligible if they qualified but were not placed in the top 3 at their Regional Oireachtas and who otherwise fulfil the Prelim criteria). The dancer must have not recalled in the actual Championship at the All-Ireland 2016 or 2017. Competitors must not have won a Preliminary Championship more than two times in the current year. If the dancer has not succeeded in placing in the top 5 but has won two Preliminary Championships in the current year, they are eligible to dance preliminary again the following year.

Reminder: All cups are perpetual. Please return last year’s cups.
