Chess – All Ireland Finals
All Ireland Finals
Sunday 15th April
Having come 2nd in the U16 Schools Chess Leinster league, the team qualified for the All Ireland’s which took place on Sunday 15th April in Gonzaga College.
Team: Sean O’Connor, Matthew Collins, Jamie Blackburn, Mark McCabe, John Duffy and Andrew McCarthy – all 2nd years.
There were 6 schools in the U16 category; Gonzaga College, Rice College Ennis, Dunmore Galway, St. Bendilus and Colasite Eanna. Gonzaga College were victorious at the end of the competition while our boys played to the best of their abilities and did Blackrock College very proud.
I thank Ms Groves for her work with the group.
