ROLL OF HONOUR – Call for Information

TTI is currently working on building up further the Association archives, and populating the respective ‘Rolls of Honour’ for the Provincial Opens – Ulster, Munster, Connacht & Leinster.

If you have any information on the winners of the Mens Singles and Ladies Singles events at these tournaments, we would very much appreciate if you could forward the details to the Office.  

We would also very much like to receive any scans or copies of clippings, photographs or other details that people are willing to share.

As much as possible we are looking for the following;

  • Mens and Ladies Singles – names and clubs of Winner/Runner Up
  • Date of event
  • Venue of event

If possible, please bear in mind that results will be grouped by season – so, a tournament that took place in November 1996, for example, will be part of the 1996/1997 season.

Please email [email protected]


Garda Vetting Update

The 100 point identification check was originally provided on the Garda National Vetting Bureau website as guiding advice when the new legislation came in on 30/04/2016. The check was to assist “Relevant Organisations” and Vetting Applicants on how they can establish identity of a Vetting Applicant.

The amendment will reflect that a “Relevant Organisation” can only request or accept the Public Service Card from a Vetting Applicant as an identity document, if the Organisation is a “Specified Body” under Schedule 5 of the Social Welfare Consolidation Act 2005 (as amended). As we are not classified as a “Specified Body”, we can no longer accept a Public Service Card as a form if ID. 

We will issue an updated version of the Garda Vetting Invitation Form (NVB1) in the New Year when received from the Garda National Vetting Bureau. Please continue to use NVB1 form in the interim. There are a number of other I.D’s that can be used for identification and which are listed under Section 3 on the form.
