Junior Chess Club


The first week of the Curragh Junior Chess Club took place on Sunday from  11:00-12:30.

After a brief 15 minute tutorial the games began.

Seven young players of varying levels took part and some good battles across the boards, with revenge matches already planned for next week!

The Junior Club will continue until Christmas and new members (aged between 8 and 14) are welcome to join, Free of Charge, at any stage. The club meets in the Watertower Conference Facility (Former library) beside the Curragh Fire Station.

Refreshments are provided for the parents and players alike.

For further information please contact Brendan on 085-7196559 or at bduffy@dit.ie
