Round 2, home game v St. Benildus – a narrow loss 3.5-4.5, a win (some what fortunately) for Luca and draws for Kevin, Conor, Colm, Oisin and John B.
First game away to Knights of Eanna/Rathmines, an unusual Friday game. A tough day at the office we lost 5.5-2.5. wins for Kevin and Oisin, and a draw for Conor. Many thanks to Fergal, Tom and Algimantas for substituting for us.

So it is little over one year on from the first lockdown and the COVID restrictions and the suspension of our club nights in Clareville community centre on a Monday. Thankfully we have been able to continue in some capacity online with our Chess.com arena games on a Monday night from 7:30-9:30 pm.
Anyone interested in playing should contact Brendan Clare or Tony Mooney.
We shall continue this, we hope when the situation changes to reopen in the autumn.
