The “Other tournaments” page gives details of tournaments held outside Ireland that involved Irish players. The first on the list was an easy choice, as Hastings 1895 ranks as one of the most famous of all tournaments.

But there are many others of interest, and now the 34th Capablanca Memorial, Havana 1999 has been added. Ireland was represented by Alexander Baburin, who finished in the middle of the table, roughly in line with rating in what was a very strong tournament (average rating 2550).
