The National Association of Sporting Rifle & Pistol Clubs will hold the 2018 NASRPC Irish Open In Midlands National Shooting Centre of Ireland, Co. Offaly on Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July 2018

About the Match

The NASRPC Irish Open is an annual event – now in its 13th year – where competitors from all over Ireland and abroad come to compete in what is, for many, the highlight of their sporting calendar.

It is a multi day event, attracting hundreds of competitors and offering a huge array of competitive disciplines. It also includes the Irish leg of the IGRF (International Gallery Rifle Federation) International Series.

The IGRF Team Events will both take place on Saturday 7th July.

Happy Birthday to us!!

2018 sees the 40th birthday of the NASRPC.

We (You!! – You are the NASRPC) have seen many changes in our sport of Target Shooting over that period – we’ve seen clubs come and go – some moving as the cities encroach on the countryside – some blending with others as their memberships have grown and waned – we’ve seen the return of target pistol shooting in both smallbore and centrefire, the growth of gallery rifle shooting with the development of the EGRF and now the IGRF, the growth of target shotgun shooting now with the development of the ITSF – the changing popularity of sporting rifle, benchrest rifle and the precision events – and that is just in our own disciplines – of course all the other shooting sports have also seen a lot of changes over that period.

We’ve seen some great successes across the sport in that time – not just within the NASRPC – but we do think that our own hosting of the IGRF World Cup last year with Ireland raising both World Cups and Jeff Kehoe and Ray Holohan both being crowned World Champions is about as good as it gets (Lump in the throat?)

If you have any NASRPC, (or NASRC, as we were known back then), photos or items of interest or anecdotes from the early days (I know, kids think 2000 was the “olden days”) we would love to hear from you.

On the evening of Saturday July 7th we will be celebrating in the Bridge House Hotel in Tullamore with some dinner, a few refreshments and having the craic.

Tickets for the Dinner are €30 and can be purchased as part of your online registration. Please specify if any Dietary Requirements.
