About this blog

This website is maintained by Rory Quinn. All articles are my own work unless otherwise stated. I originally started this blog in 2009 to give Ennis Chess Club a web presence something the club needed at the time. While providing coverage and information about chess in Ennis and the Munster/Connaught areas in particular it also provides commentary on national and international chess news.

While by definition a blog contains opinion pieces I try to be as objective as possible when it comes to reporting chess news. Feel free to agree or disagree using the comment button on the site.

Contributions to the site are welcome and articles can be submitted to ennischessclub@hotmail.com. Comments are also very welcome though you will need to set up an account with wordpress first (something which is quite easy to do by the way). I don’t allow anonymous comments so you may be asked to verify your identity before your comment is approved.

If you are an adult beginner wanting to learn how to play then please come along to the chess club on Tuesday nights. If you are a junior beginner looking for coaching or to play then contact John Cassidy on 087-2495913.

This blog has been on the go since 2009 and posts are archived periodically. Currently all posts prior to January 2017 are only accessible by password. Drop me an email at ennischessclub@hotmail.com if you need the password.

  1. Hi there!
    This is Johannes Krumm from Germany. Think some of You guys will remember me. 🙂
    I noticed that You are organizing a tournament in Ennis next year?
    Do You have already some more information about? Which month will it happen?
    This is very interesting for me..perhaps I will play, and brush up some memories of my great time in Ennis.
    Oh dear… it is already 10 years ago now since I played for Ennis.
    Time goes quickly.
    Thanks and all the best to all of You!
    Johannes

  2. Hi Johannes
    Yes we organise a chess congress in Ennis every year. I will update the page at https://ennischessclub.wordpress.com/ennis-open-2010/ with the details later. It looks like the 2015 tournament will be held over the weekend of 16-18th May.
    Regards
    Rory
