The Irish Bouldering League is under Mountaineering Ireland and is run over 5 Competitions each year, with 30 problems to be solved in each competition. Points are scored from 10 Points to 1 depending on which attempt a climber solves a problem (10 Pts for 1st Attempt, 7 Pts for 2nd Attempt etc) [See Articles for References]
The Speleological Union of Ireland governs Caving in Ireland, which its’ website says is diverse and welcoming. There are 10 active Caving Clubs in Ireland, including 5 Student Clubs. There are caves in almost every part of Ireland with some as long as the 16km passage in Pollnagollum, Co. Clare, with the largest concentration in Co. Clare (Munster) and Co. Fermanagh and Co. Cavan (Ulster). There are new caves discovered all the time and caves yet to be discovered.
Capture the Flag
Capture the Flag is Information Security Competitions, a kind of Sport for Computer Combat. There are three common types of CTF Competitions: Jeopardy, Attack-Defense, and Mixed
Jeopardy Competitions have a number of Tasks (questions) such as Web, Forensic, Crypto or Binary. Teams gain points for completed tasks, the harder the task, the more points.
Attack-Defense is another scenario, whereby teams have their own network (or only one host) with vulnerable services. Teams have a time limit for developing services and developing exploits. Then the organisers connect the competitors and the Wargame starts. Points are gained for Defense (protecting own services) and Attack (hacking opponents services).
Mixed employ both Jeopardy and Attack-Defense scenarios.
Capture the Flag games touch on a number of different aspects of information security, such as Cryptography, Stego, Binary Analysis, Reverse Engineering and Mobile Security.
