UL Open 2012

Hey one and all,

The UL Open 2012 will be taking place on the 9th and 10th of March this year and promises to be the best one yet!

The team cap is provisionally set at 32 teams.

We have a wonderful and very enthuastic CA team this year including:
-UCD's finest Christine Simpson (WUDC semi-finalist!,EUDC quarter Finalist 2011,Cambridge 2011 quarter Finalist,Oxford quarter Finalist 2011, Edinburgh Open 2011 Winner,most importantly UL Open 2011 Finalist and too many other breaks too mention)
-UL's (whatevs NUIG) own Maurice Cotter (UL Open 2011 Finalist,UCD Earlsfort Open Finalist 2011,Cork IV 2010 Semi-Finalist,Cork Open 2011 Finalist and various other accomplishments such as best speaker wins etc.)

Our Tabmaster is Harry McEvansoneya (UL Open Finalist), who has run tabs at EUDC(!!!),SOAS, UCD, Maynooth and Trinity as well as being an excellent tabmaster at last year's IV. He has confirmed he will be mostly sober so huzzah!

As always UL never fails to feed its guests and there will be food and drink in abundance including baked goods on arrival (provided ye arrive on time)!

Reg will open on January 30th 2012.
Payment in advance of the IV is 60euro.
Payment on the day is 70euro.
There will be a reduced reg fee for UK teams (30 euro) and non-IONA teams (FREE).

We have a limited amount of crash, with the first priority being making sure any judges that travel are comfortable and any non-Irish teams are also a priority so if you could book accommodation for the weekend where possible it would be great. If you need crash, don't be afraid to contact me and I'll endeavor to help.

There is a certain amount of money set aside for funding judges to come down to Limerick, if you're interested in coming drop me an email or a phone call ( and 0870569164 respectively) and I'll do my best to accommodate you. There will be much free drink and appreciation.

Any questions, feel free to contact me at

Best wishes,
Michelle Coyle
IV Convenor
