RIP Philip Short

Irish chess lost one of it’s titans recently with the death of Philip Short. I remember as a youngster going through Philips games in copies of the Irish Chess Journal. I got to play him quite a few times in more recent years. He was an excellent chess player but more importantly was a very pleasant and modest person. Deepest sympathies to all his family and friends.
