The chess club’s AGM is set for Thursday, Sept. 2nd. Anyone wanting to forward a motion for the AGM is welcome to contact one of the officers, either Jack Killane, acting Secretary, or John Maher, Treasurer, or Michael Kennedy, President.
The club is seeking a volunteer for the post of Secretary. This is probably the most important club position. It doesn’t involve too much work – just some correspondence with the LCU and ICU, and some smaller technical matters. Jack is withdrawing from the position this year. Anyone is welcome to apply, they just have to be nominated and then voted for at the AGM. Please contact one of the above officers beforehand to let them know of your interest.
Liam King was laid to rest today in Harold’s Cross. R.I.P.
The Belgian trip has been cancelled – unfortunately the dates did not suit enough people.
The league season kicks off with Rathmines A. vs. Rathmines B. in the Armstrong, on Thursday, September 16th.
We are saddened to relay the news of the passing away of Liam King, long-time member of the club. Liam’s body was discovered late last week at his home.
Liam was the club’s Auditor for many, many years, a role he fulfilled with honesty, meticulous attention to detail, and efficiency. He worked hard to maintain the club’s traditions, rules, and constitution. He wrote the well-received History page on this web site, which he had extracted from a close reading of the club’s AGM Meeting Minutes, of which he was the careful custodian. He played less regularily over the last few years, but still managed a very good end-of-season contribution to the O’Hanlon Cup team, with a marvellous 3/4, enough to help the team win the league this year.
Out thoughts are with the family and friends of Liam at this time.
I have no news of funeral details yet.
