Last summer, former Munster and Ireland lock Mick Galwey took his Munster Legends team to Dingle for the first Beach Tag event at Muiríoch Beach. Where will he bring his team this year? Will you be playing against him?
Also watch out for appearances of Ireland's RBS 6 Nations and Triple Crown trophies which will be stopping by at various Bud Light Tag venues and events throughout the summer.
