Its all over!!!

Finally the June congress draws to a close and it was a wonderful weekend of chess! After the countless games of chess (well, it is countable if you take the time… ), minor incidents, a few “handbags at dawn” and various other moments, a great weekend was had by all.

Amid all of the amazing games and results, one result stands above the rest – Pat Coleman with a perfect 6/6. He started round 1 from Table 1 and never left if all weekend (“Its my TABLE!!!!“). Well done Pat on a fantastic result.

  1. Hi Michael, Didn’t get a chance to talk to you at the end of the day there today but we just wanted to express our sincere thanks to you for a fantastic tournament. Despite Josh not having a great tournament in terms of points, we really enjoyed the weekend. It was very well run and as we witnessed many times, any issues or problems were dealt with promptly and in a positive fashion. It was great to get to meet you lot in Drogheda and to get to know a few more of the chess addicts from around the country. Again many thanks and we look forward to seeing you next year, Kind Regards,

    Peter, Ruth and Josh Redmond (Enniscorthy Chess Club)
