Items to Download for IUC

I have been asked to request that you please download the free app xscoreboard by Patrick Stanczak to your iphone/ipad to aid in scoring some matches on the IUC practice scenarios. Those with windows or other smartphone can download a similar app (e.g. scorekeeper) to their device.


Please also download a copy of the ITF rules for competition from the ITF website and bring in either hard copy or digital format. Follow this link; http://www.tkd-itf.org/competition/#rules-regulations


Getting to Citywest


Here are some options for getting to the Citywest hotel from Dublin Airport. 

Option 1; Taxi from outside terminal building. This will cost about 45 euro. A good option for a group sharing the taxi ride. 


Option 2; Get the Dublin coach (www.dublincoach.ie ) green bus outside the terminal as far as the Red Cow Luas (light rail) stop. From there get the Luas (light rail) as far as Citywest.The coach will cost €5 and the Luas €1.70


Option 3; Get a Bus from outside the terminal to the city centre and from there get the Luas (light rail to Citywest. This will take longer than option 2 but might be a good choice for those arriving early and wishing to do some sightseeing or shopping in the city.
