The 2018 IGRF Open is fast approaching with a little over nine months until the event kicks of on the 6-8 of July 2018

For those who have been here before we look forward to seeing you all again and for those of you visiting Ireland for the first time we’re very excited to meet you all.

Here is a brief update we hope helps answer any questions you have, but please don’t hesitate to contact us with additional questions.

Firearms licenses

The cost of a visitors permit is €40 per license when attending Ireland so two guns means €80. The use of centre fire pistol calibre firearms or centrefire rifles are restricted to the licensee only and cannot be shared. The use of unrestricted rifle such as .22 semi-automatic means they can be shared among your travelling party.

The NASRPC will coordinate all applications for the travelling parties. The fees for the firearms license will be payable on arrival at the competition. The permits last for one calendar year and maybe applied for at any time. Once you wish to submit the paperwork let us know.

The link to required form is here.
