Leprecon, Irish NDC : Feb 29-March 2

Leprecon is a well established gaming con which is now in its 29th year, and most of the Irish Dip community live in Dublin. Dublin has better travel and accommodation options. Since Leprecon is a university based convention, it only costs €12 for the weekend and €5 for the competition. The weekend ticket obviously allows full entry to the whole con, which has a full programme of other games and social events. Mike is still the NDC organiser and the official point of contact for the Dip games, and players should register with him in advance to know how many players to prepare for.
This tournament is the opening step of the Grand Prix and some foreigners will probably come.
