Cumann Rince Náisiúnta celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2012 by launching the CRN World Open Championships ‘Craobhacha Oscailte na Cruinne’.
The 1st World Open Championships took place over the 2012 June Bank Holiday weekend in the very prestigious world renowned Wexford Opera House. The event was such a success the 2nd World Open Championships were also staged in the Wexford Opera House in 2013.
As an organisation we were very proud to take the World Open Championships on the road. Consequent Championships were held in Castlebar, Co. Mayo, in both the Royal Theatre and Event Centre and the Breaffy House Resort and Event Centre and our last two World Open Championships were held in the prestigious INEC in Killarney, Co Kerry. We had a very enjoyable and successful time in Killarney in 2018 and look forward to hosting the 2019 CRN World Open Championships there also. The 2019 event will take place from Thursday 20th June – Sunday 23rd June.
