Thanks to the clubs who have already sent named officials. May I remind all clubs, it is a condition of competition for all clubs to provide officials to assist. In this regard, I would be obliged if all clubs could send me the names of their officials by noon tomorrow with their email addresses, as I need to assign duties and issue them with a car park pass. I would also be obliged, if clubs who have already sent names to please confirm them and please include their email addresses.

ONLY listed officials will be permitted to park in the designated car park area(s) on the day, and should arrive at 8:30. Please check in with Seamus Flynn at the car park area. A list of officials and duties will be circulated, with additional information in the coming days.Please indicate if your officials are willing to remain on after the Dublin contests to assist with the National relays and Autumn Open contests on the day.


An appointed club official should collect and sign for the bib numbers which Shirley will have in envelopes at the check-in tent. These MUST be collected no later than 9:00 on the day. Pleaser make sure your athletes know the name of the club official who has responsibility for issuing the numbers., and PLEASE MAKE SURE THE ATHLETES ARE WEARING THE CORRECT NUMBER.

U18 numbers will not be in the club envelope. These are included with the Junior Autumn Open numbers and can be collected at the National check-in table.

Thanks to those who have confirmed they will assist with set up. Please meet at Abbotstown House (beside the course) at 12 noon on Saturday. Clubs might take the opportunity to set up tents on Saturday as access will be restricted on Sunday. Also, thanks to Celric DCH who have agreed to help with the take down on Sunday.
