HackEire is Ireland's premier Cyber Security Challenge and is part of IRISSCERT's annual Conference on Cybercrime to identify Ireland's top cyber security experts.  HackEire sees teams compete against each other in a controlled environment to determine which one will be the first to exploit weaknesses in a number of systems and declare victory.  The purpose the HackEire competition is to demonstrate how attackers could gain access to your systems and allow you to learn from the event on how to prevent such attacks from impacting your network.
