I was asked at the Scottish Open (I can't remember by whom!) to post the link to the East of Ireland Open. It's a 6w open the weekend before Merseyside.
It's normally one of the best attended tournaments in Ireland numbers-wise reaching ~30 in each of the men's weapons. Sorry but I can't remember the women's attendance although I know it's a bit lower.
