Miller wins Irish Womens Championship

Well done to WFM Ioana Miller who won the Irish Womens Championship 2017 which was held in Dublin recently. Antonina Gora came second and there was a three way tie in third back to fifth between Alice O Gorman, Dayna Ferguson and Harriet Haslehurst. Full details are available on the Irish Chess Union website.

The Annual Kilkenny Congress is taking place this weekend. There are links to live games from the Irish Chess Union website. It looks like boards two and three have agreed quick draws in the masters so the winner of Maze-Baburin (if there is one) will be going into the final day as sole leader.
