National CC – News and Team

Rathmines have entered a team for the National Club Championships, to be held on the weekend of Saturday 25th April – Sunday 26th April 2009, in Ballinasloe. The top two placed teams qualify for the European Club Cup. Full list of rules available on the ICU website:

The team captain, Jack Killane, tells me the Rathmines team will be:

  1. John DelaneyFM 2244
  2. Peter Cafolla 1987
  3. Killian Delaney 1922
  4. Mindaugaus Janusaitis 1857
  5. Jack Killane 1827
  6. Michael Kennedy 1796

I believe that the other teams, only five in total, are to be:

  1. Ennis
  2. Galway
  3. Kilkenny (Baburin, Quinn, Heidenfeld et al)
  4. Limerick
  5. Dublin University

I also understand that they’ve decided to reduce it to three rounds only (I’m not 100% certain about this). It will be FIDE rated. Good luck to the team!
