BDO McCloy and Pearson Festivals 

The McCloy (Girls) and Pearson (Boys) Cups are primary school hockey festivals. Both festivals are run from February to May each year with finals day festivals involving all qualifying teams from right across Ulster taking place in May. Both competitions date back more than 30 years and are growing in numbers year on year with more schools taking part in more areas across Ulster.

With a new and exciting sponsor in BDO NI for the next 3 years both festivals will only get bigger as we move forward.
