Trophies for the event have been kindly sponsored by Lazernow Custom Gifts. They will be awarded to the top three pairs with a perpetual All Ireland Pairs Champions trophy for the winners. Entry to the competition is limited to 29 Pairs.

Some 40 bed nights will be booked and any one with bed nights available or wanting to get involved are to contact Adrian on
