Entries Open for 2024 Irish Championship

Entries are now open for the 2024 Irish Championship. As in recent years, the Championship will take place in three stages: Qualifiers, Top 8, and Final. Qualifiers will be played online through January and February, with the Top 8 taking place in Dublin over the first weekend in March.

Entry is open to Irish citizens, and to citizens of other countries who have been legally resident in Ireland for a minimum of two years. Entrants must also be members of the Irish Go Association.

In addition to determining the Irish Champion, the Championship series also awards points towards representing Ireland at the World Amateur Go Championship. Following this year’s changes in the rules, WAGC points will be awarded based on finishing position in the Qualifiers as well as the Top 8, and we strongly encourage all eligible players to enter the series.

To enter, simply email the Secretary. The deadline for entry is December 31st.
