It’s Thursday (11th July 2013) , day 6 of the Senior Irish championships and we can watch the games live at ulchess .
Watch out for Galway player John Cormican, who is technically a junior but playing with great maturity.. John had a great win yesterday. I’ve just checked the tournament hall and John looks to have another great position again today.
The 1st ever FIDE chess instructors course to be held in Ireland is running at the same time as the Irish championships on the beautiful UL campus. This is professional training and hopefully it will be run annually together with the Irish chess championships. Special thanks to FST Kevin O’Connell, who travels from France to share his love of chess and learning with us.
