The Irish Open 2024 Exceeds All Expectations!

A week before the event we spoke to JP McCann, one of the organizers of the event. It’s safe to say that The Irish Open is one of Europe’s key live events for poker players from all around the world, and is going by the title ‘oldest active event’ out there. Not only do poker players enjoy great poker action in Dublin, but the ‘craic’ is what describes The Irish Open at its finest.

JP McCann as a person, might just be a great reflection of what people can expect during the event from all the staff which is making the world the round in Dublin. Professionalism, kindness, and a great person to have some banter with.
