For those interested, the three judges at the competition are wine critics Tomas Clancy from the Sunday Business Post and Leslie Williams Irish Examiner and also Alex Hill from Vigo LTD (UK commercial cider machinery and equipment supplier)and cider judge at the major UK cider competitions.

Daniel also mentioned that he will be on the Stonewell Cider stand at the RDS Craft Beer & Cider Festival this weekend and application forms can be dropped into him there.

Talking with the main man at the RDS: if you can e-mail an entry form ( as stated by say Monday ) that will be grand. The money can be snail-mailed.
