Blas na hEireann – 2018
Please find delivery dates below for UCC & The Baking Academy. These date correspond with our judging schedule so please check the delivery date and location for your category carefully and check the following...

Have you got your entry confirmation?
This is most important as this email confirmation will include your…
1. Entry Number
This is the number which will follow your entry through the whole process, most importantly when it is blind tasted by our judges. This is individual to each entry and must be marked clearly on each sample.
2. Delivery sheet
Attached to your confirmation email is a delivery sheet which is already filled in with your entry number, producer name and details etc and your delivery date, location and address.
A copy of this sheet must be included with each delivery, one copy per delivery is fine but please do mark the entry number clearly on each of your 5 samples.

If you have a number of different delivery dates for your products please contact us to see if we can accommodate one delivery date. Please be sure to follow the steps above and you will make us a very happy Blas team when we are checking the samples in for judging!
