Does the age category 'under 12' mean 12 and under?
No - you must not have turned 12 by the 1st January in the year of the competition. Therefore, if your 12th birthday falls on or before the 1st January 2018, you must enter the competition for the next age category up. If your birthday falls after 1st January 2018, for the purposes of the competition, you qualify as an under 12.
To assist you, we have incorporated a 'Feis age' calculator on the online entry form which automatically calculates your age as relevant to the next Feis as soon as you insert your date of birth. Therefore, you can see straight away if you are in the correct age category or not.
