The Irish Chess Union are pleased to announce three all-female chess tournaments.

The first event takes place on 9th December in Kilmurry Lodge Hotel, Castletroy, Limerick from 2.00 – 5.30. There will be 5 rounds, the time control is 20 minutes per person, the event will not be rated and is open to ALL female chess players regardless of age, and rating. Although a separate event, we shall be using the same venue as the Limerick Rapidplays. This should ensure plenty of "chess company". The entry fee is €12. If you are thinking of entering this event please drop me a line at .

The second tournament will take place in The Bridge Centre, St. Mary's Road, Galway, on Sunday 20th January, again the same date as the Galway Rapidplays, and we hope to hold the third tournament in Dublin in February or March, time and venue to be arranged.

Please pass on the word to any females you know who play chess. Also, if you have any questions or any ideas regarding womens chess in Ireland please drop me a line at or phone me (085 710 5408).

Le gach dea-ghuí, Gearóidín Uí Laighléis
