I came back to the club a few years back after what was intended to be a short break that stretched to 20 years! Mostly, it was just as it was back then and probably a lot like it was even 125 years ago. However, there was one noticeable change – technology had somehow managed to infiltrate and Rathmines Chess Club had a web site. And very interesting and relevant it was too. It was mainly down to Tony Scannell’s great efforts and the members owe him a debt a gratitude for the hours he put in and the quality of the work.
Unfortunately, Tony no longer has the time required to administer the site so the baton has been passed to me. Hopefully, I will be able to keep it at the high standard to which you’ve been accustomed. But, patience please, as I’ll undoubtedly need some time to find my feet.
I hope we can have lots of interesting content and plenty of relevant comment and response. So, to help me get this going I’d appreciate suggestions on content or, better still, contributions of content.
