Thoughts on the LCU leagues resuming

The LCU is seeking thoughts from clubs, teams, and players about the leagues resuming, either finishing the 2019-2020 season and starting the new 2021 seasons, and the various living with covid challenges. Contact the secretary Brendan or a committee member to share your thought so the club can issue a response.

One year on

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 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.

Stay safe!

Michael Delaney RIP

Michael Delaney passed away on Bank Holiday Monday. Michael was a very active member of our club, playing matches in Armstrong, Heidenfeld and Ennis Shield over many many years. He previously played Chess in Sutton, Portmarnock and Kevin Barry. In March, despite his illness, he played a home game just before the suspension of all chess leagues. Michael was Irish Braille Chess Champion on a number of occasions and represented Ireland internationally, not only in Chess but at the para-Olympics, on three occasions, in Atlanta ’96, Sydney 2000 and Beijing 2008,  in Cycling, Athletics, Long and High Jump. He will be missed by all of us in Phibsboro Chess Club. We extend our deepest sympathy to Michael’s, family and friends.
