Boys running in a girls relay team

Now I do KNOW that this seems like a stupid question but....

In Athletics Ireland juvenile competitions in Ireland, can a boy run as part of a girls relay team, or vice versa of course?

I’ve looked (briefly I admit) on the Athletics Ireland website and the Juvenile Competition Booklet and I can’t find any mention of the subject.

Once again, I acknowledge that the answer seems obvious!

Athletics Ireland are governed by the rules set down by the International Association of Athletics Federations where relays are single gender unless stated otherwise (a specifically titled mixed relay)

Thank you for that, that’s very helpful. It does seem obvious that a girls race would only have girls.. But you never know.....

A child might have transitioned?

That's where I thought this thread was going at first, thankfully this hasn't started to become an issue this side of the Atlantic just yet.
