As was briefly mentioned in our recent national series meeting, your national series points can be used to qualify for international competition at sprint standard and middle distance.
I am thinking of trying to get qualified for next year.
It seems to be a great idea to represent Ireland either in Europe or Internationally and I am reliably informed that it is not hard to qualify---an age group top 5 in certain races or top 5 of applicants using national series points or a pool of leftover spots again 5 for each age group. seems to be a lot of fun and always held in a nice part of europe (hasnt been announced yet....?netherlands for 2019)
