At the EGM on Monday it was decided that the Clareville Community Centre, Glasnevin, would be our new venue. Thanks to everyone involved in seeking new premises, we can now concentrate on the new season.
Since it is a residential area we ask all members to be respectful and quiet while leaving the premises.
Thanks to everyone who attended the Summer Blitz last night. Well done to Mohammad for claiming the spoils. Many thanks to Brendan C, Bernard, Brendan R., Tony M and Mick for organising it.

Fellow Club Members
Last Monday was our first evening in Clareville Community Centre Glasnevin.
Members had an opportunity to play chess in a different location following four
successful weeks in Artane Community Centre.
The committee met and reviewed progress to date. It was decided to hold an EGM on Monday 12th August to finalise our club’s location for the 2019/2020 playing season. Members are invited to Clareville on that night to decide on the season ahead. All members are asked to attend to participate in the decision making process.
In the meantime chess playing in Clareville continues on these nights from 7.30pm until 11pm:
- Monday 29th July club night
- Tuesday 6th August – Fun Blitz night
- Monday 12th August – EGM
- Monday 19th August- club night
Please note the Fun Blitz night is on Tuesday 6th August because the club will be closed on the Bank Holiday Monday. Please email your name to me if you wish to enter the Fun Blitz,
The Committee very much appreciates the support of all members during this period of transition,
For the next four weeks, we are trying out Clareville Day Care Centre, Glasnevin, as a possible new venue. We meet tonight at 7:30.
We ask all members to visit the premises so we can have feedback as to how it suits.
Also since it is a residential area we ask all members to be respectful and quiet while leaving the premises.
The Club Championships finished up on Monday, with Dave Salter and Lukasz Kwiatek finishing joint 1st, with Kevin Butler in 3rd. Well done to all who played and to Brendan and Mick for organizing it amidst the venue upheavals.
Following a decision made by the members at the EGM the Committee have

Please note a special EGM will be held in the Teachers club 36 Parnell Square next Thursday 13th June at 8pm sharp.
Agenda. To discuss the future of the club, to find new suitable premises to play chess.
Any member who knows anywhere that we can use please tell a committee member so we can check it out.
A full attendance of members is expected so everybody can have their say.
Sadly An Oige informed us that they are closing the Dublin premises in mid-July. So we have to source alternative premises at quite short notice.
So if anyone has any ideas or suggestions could they let one of the Committee (Bernard, Breandán, Brendan, Mick, Conor, Tom Paddy or Peter) know and we shall investigate and hopefully we can find a suitable place asap.
What an exciting league it was this year. Well done to our heidenfeld side who was oh so close to being promoted, being one of 4 teams in 2nd place on points, unfortunately on tie-break we finished in 3rd place. Excellent wins for Mohammad, Kevin and Marc, and a draw for Conor. Dave pushed for a win, as we tried to ensure we would win, however it wasn’t to be. Thanks to everyone who played and especially those who substituted for us when we needed it.
Our Ennis side finished strongly the last few rounds to maintain its league position as well, remarkably all 6 players played ever game this season.
Good Luck to everyone playing in the Club Championships which starts tonight.
The 2019 Club Championships starts on Monday 20th of May (the day after the final day of the Leinster Leagues). So put your name down on the list on the noticeboard, or contact Mick Germaine or Brendan Clare so you are put in the draw.
