I am going to prepare an article about Kieran Cranny over the next while. He made many contributions to Rathmines Chess Club and to chess life in Ireland in general. If anybody has any stories, anecdotes, or just general reminisces, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Everybody has small stories to tell about Kieran’s sense of humour, his welcoming smile, and his general good work for the club.
Especially welcome are games – please send on any game where Kieran showed his true strength! I welcome contributions from anybody, within RCC or not. Was anybody a member of Sackville Chess Club, where Kieran played before he joined Rathmines, etc? Does anybody remember his first days in Rathmines?
