There are total of 44 matches; 16 matches each day on Saturday and Sunday with a further 12 matches on the Monday. Matches are generally 25 mins each way and 30 minutes each way on the final day.

A lot of time and effort has gone into this tournament and your involvement would be greatly appreciated by the Organising Committee. There is likely to be a full programme of provincial matches on this day and there would be an expectation to honour any local appointments. However, umpires wishing to be appointed to any of the days should contact John Cathcart directly via email - - and advise him of your availability.

Former International Umpire reaches 100 year old milestone! (from Irish HUA)

Des Simon has reached his 100th birthday, today, Tuesday 20th September 2016. He made an immense contribution to Irish Hockey; he was presented with his FIH International Umpiring Badge in 1964 and was also an international and provincial selector.

He was an ever present member of the Irish Hockey Union Executive Committee in the early seventies and later went on to be President of the Irish Hockey Union in 1973-74, an honour he well deserved. He was also President of the Ulster Branch however he was best known for his role as Honorary Secretary of the Ulster Branch between 1970 and 1985. In recent years, Des duly received Honorary Life Membership in recognition for his services to Irish Hockey.

Des brought great stature to the game through his high standards of efficiency and integrity. He will be celebrating this magnificent milestone tonight at a special organised 'party'. We hope he has a super night - but not too much as we might need him this weekend!!
