Ennis Congress 2022

The Ennis Congress this weekend has around 140 participants, all eager to get back to otb chess in what promises to be an exciting tournament.

IM Sam Collins, winner of the strong Bunratty online rapid tournament last weekend, will be hoping to make this weekend another winning one. GM Keith Arkell also takes part (he is doing a simul this evening in the West County – contact John Cassidy for details). Others no doubt hoping to be in the final shakeup are FM Colm Daly and Blair Connell who won the recent Ennis tournament with a score of 5 out of 5.

Some of the games will be broadcast live so keep an eye on the Irish Chess Union and Limerick chess club website for links to standings and games if you’re not playing and want to follow the action.
