    Hey just pointing out the the Munster Open is actually open to all ICU members, I know it says on the munster website that it is just for players from Munster but the leaflet says its open for all ICU members and that only titles will be awarded to people from Munster I plan on going, hopefully see more of ye there!

      Hi Carlos,

      I’d advise checking with the organisers before you make any commitments, as I’ve been told that it isn’t open to those of us outside Munster (unless you were born there, that is). Good luck if you get to go.

        Hey Pete,
        I’m not sure about it anymore but I’m actually not going anymore as I’m going to be playing in the Leinster league with Ballinasloe on that weekend.

    Thanks for the post Carlos and good luck in the tournament.
