General Notices

The third and final round of the Blitz tournament is next Tuesday 18th March. (Even if you haven’t competed in the previous rounds, you can still play in this round. Nine games per round.)

The club will be shut on Holy Thursday, 20th March.

The committee have decided the dates and terms of the Rathmines Club Championships. (There is a flyer attached in the posting below this one.)

The Summer Team Competition will be held on four June nights: Tuesday 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th. Teams of 3 players split by grading.

We are forming two Brannigan Cup teams and one Killane Shield team. The Branagan Cup teams are open to all members who played in the recent Armstrong Cup or Heidenfeld league teams. The Killane Shield team will be open to members who played in the Ennis or O’Hanlon. If you are interested in playing, please contact Peter Bishop or Michael Kennedy.


I am always looking for annotated games to put up on the website. If you have played an exciting or interesting game this season, whether in the leagues or a tournament, please feel free to send it to me for publication. Annotating your own games is one of the most recommended ways for players to improve their knowledge of chess. No games (especially not for us amateurs) are perfect. Mistakes are often very enlightening too, so please do not hesitate just because there are mistakes in your games!
