Due to the current situation of a lack of a Northern Ireland Executive the Irish FA Foundation have received communication from DENI that it will provide no further funding for this programme which is now in the tenth year of delivery.  This programme has also been celebrated through the receiving of coaching awards in Northern Ireland and the UK.

In this academic year the Irish FA Primary School team has delivered over 800 sessions in 204 schools to over 19,500 pupils each week and mentored over 800 teachers and classroom assistants in the process.  This combined with the work of the Ulster GAA results in over 40,000 children and over 400 schools receiving the provision each week.  A provision that will be lost due to a removal of funding.
