Is the Dublin event in January 2018 open, or restricted to IRL players?

The English, as opposed to British, Championship events seem to have been discontinued.

They haven't made this entirely clear.
Irish residents who are not IRL-registered (we do have quite a few of them these days) can enter but not win the title(s).

On the ICU website they say: "If you are traveling from abroad and have never been an ICU member before - you can enter..." but I am not sure if that's for the Irish diaspora or anyone.

I will ask ICU officials about this at the weekend when the Irish blitz and rapid championships are on.

I got confirmation that overseas enties are welcome. Anybody can enter though the titles are only for IRL-registered players.

Overseas players will need a FIDE reg number (FIN) and maybe to pay an Irish Chess Union membership. Check with the organisers.
The venue looks like a good hotel; not sure what terms they are offering.
