All Ireland Championships on Sunday Next


The first session of the All Ireland Championships under 12,14,16 and 18 will  be held in Santry Demesne. West Waterford athletes will gather at the venue from 10.00am. As yet we have no timetable, information on parking or covid forms.

The event will be an all ticket affair and every adult travelling must have a ticket.

There is no parking at the venue so our advice would be to drop your passengers at the gate opposite the Crown Plaza and then go to the designated parking.
