Irish Open 2012

So a while back I decided to drive to the Irish Open (1351 miles),  at Easkey, Ireland… And my partner in crime this time was Pete ‘The Badger’ Copp… We left late on a Tuesday evening, and with little to no sleep, arrived the next day to a breakfast at home that would of choked a horse!! Got to love going home to your mother!

We had a look at the forecast and decided a few days around Bundoran was the best option, before going on down to Easkey for the contest. It was great to meet up with friends old and new to surf with along the way, and score some pretty good waves too!

Thanks to Morgan O’Sullivan for putting on a great event as always, and to everyone who came along to give it a great buzz and atmosphere… But can you make it a bit warmer next year??


The results were as follows…
