Update to competition for 2021

Dates for the Munster T&F Season :- Saturday 31st July - Munster Senior & Masters T&F in Templemore This year, due to the restrictions imposed on us for Covid-19, there will be NO Relay competition or Juvenile "B" T&F Championships. These will not be run at National level either. Junior, Senior & Master Athletes will be confined to a maximum of two events. No guests will be permitted. All Throwers are asked to bring their own implements to competition. Please just bear in mind that it may be necessary to change some of the details relating to the Championships depending on the Covid-19 situation at the time and the number of entries that we receive. Munster AAI hope to have the online entry opened in the next few days and will circulate more details then.
