This is a tough month theme. I know nothing about the Irish except that leprechauns are a thing. Not easy to do imo

Yeah, maybe. You know... before the invention of the Internet.

Here's a link.  I'm guessing you can find more.

Off the top of my head, characters of Irish folklore that come to mind include leprechauns, the banshees, Cú Chulainn, and the Druids.

A belated congratulations to JohnnyChany, our first four-time winner!

As per the winner of every tournament, @JohnnyChany, your entry has been moved to the CBUB Hall of Fame and copied to the Outstanding Match Set-ups thread. Since you didn't post a link to your match in this thread, though, it was a little tougher to find.

I'll stress again for everyone that enters a tournament to post a link to your entries in the Tournament thread, so that the winner will be easier to locate and induct.
