A Research Project

The available history of Irish chess has many gaps in it. The aim of this website was to gather together information on the tournaments that have shaped Irish chess. I want to thank all those who helped me in this task. While research is ongoing, the amount of information obtained now allows me to move beyond a Research Project to establishing a Database of chess tournaments played on the island of Ireland.

You can find that Database, also called Irish Chess History at
