Members will be aware of the untimely and tragic death of Philip Hogarty as a result of a road accident on Tuesday, 1st January, 2008. As well as being a member of the Club, Philip was Chairman of the Irish Chess Union and will be sadly missed by both the club and the Union.
Philip’s family have requested that rather than sending flowers, people who want to express sympathy should make a contribution to the Jobstown Chess Club, of which Philip was also a member. Rathmines members who wish to contribute can do so through either Peter Bishop (Secretary), John Maher (Treasurer), or Jack Killane (President).
The Rathmines A team’s Armstrong Cup game scheduled for this Tuesday, 8th January, against Dublin University, has been postponed. Our thanks go to the Leinster Chess Union and Dublin University for agreeing readily to this postponement.
