About the Match:

The NASRPC Irish Open is an annual event – now in its 14th 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 large numbers 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, as well as the Irish leg of the ITSF (International Target Shotgun Federation) International Series.

The IGRF Team Events will both take place on Saturday 6th July.

The ITSF Team Events will both take place on Friday 5th July.

NASRPC are also holding an invitational Pistol match on Sunday 7th July – hoping to see teams from Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England and others compete.
