Galway Community Games 2015

This years Galway finals were the most competitive and compelling for a few years.  The county Chess champions are the current All-Ireland U-16 Champions ..IMG_0539.. Claregalway/Lackagh’s experience helped them against the fast improving Castlegar team and a strong Ballinasloe team.  All players gave there best in this section.IMG_0537In the U-13 section Ballinasloe were the strongest team.  They had to get past last years winners, Knocknacarra in the first round.  And followed that with a win against Clairnbridge to set up a final against Castlegar.

Next up for our champions is the Connaught finals .. in Sligo, on the 1st w/e of July.  Thanks to organisers Darren Kelly and John McKenna, both of whom do great work for community games chess.
