Wexford Scrabble contest returns for its 25th year

By Amy Lewis

People from across the country who share a way with words flock to Wexford annually for the Scrabble Tournament and this November, the competition will mark its 25th anniversary.

The event in the Curracloe Hotel will see over 40 Scrabble enthusiasts go head to head in a series of scrabble games on November 5 and 6. This year will see visitors coming from as far away as Australia in an attempt to be crowned the champ.

Visitors from Germany and the UK will also take part, while a newcomer from Tipperary will also get involved for the first year ever. They will go head-to-head with some of Ireland's seasoned players, who have been attending the competition for many years.

There is still time for people to sign up to take part. Those who are interested can email or enter via the Irish Scrabble Association website.
