National Club Championships and Irish Championships 2017

Details received from John McMorrow re the upcoming National Club Championships which are being held in the Gresham Hotel, Dublin next weekend 4th and 5th March. Running alongside the NCC is the Irish Mind Sports Championship for U1600 players. On the Friday night the Irish Mind Sports Championships blitz event will take place. Its a 9 round 3 minute +2 sec aside event with a good prize fund. Looks like an excellent line up of events for the weekend.

John also sent on details of this years Irish Championships which are returning to Limerick for the first time since 2013. The venue will be the Savoy Hotel which is a great location for the tournament. Round times have been changed from 2pm to 3pm and the event is already shaping up to be a strong one.

Brochure for Irish Championships 2017 – Apparently the venue for this years Irish has changed to the West County in Ennis owing to lack of availability in the Savoy. Obviously good news for any Ennis chess players, I think its the first time Ennis has hosted the Irish.

  1. Are you playing National Clubs Rory?

  2. Haven’t heard anything about an Ennis team in the event this year, presumably Ballinasloe are playing?
    I have other things on this weekend so can’t play anyway. Looks like a good lineup of events though.

  3. Yep we’ll give it a lash. We’ll probably be bottom seeds but hoping for an odd result here and there!

  4. Best of luck!

  5. Dispiriting that we didn’t enter 😦

  6. As expected we are seeded 12th…..of 12!
