Ireland is set to stage at the 44th FIDE Chess Olympiad 2022 in Chennai. The 2022 Olympiad has surpassed all records with a whopping 188 and 162 Countries in Open and Women's categories, respectively. The event commences on 28th July and Round 1 starts at 10:30 Irish Time. Before Team Ireland heads to Chennai, we Irish Chess Union and well-wishers have made a video to boost Team Ireland.
Irish Chess Union thanks all the well-wishers for taking the time to cheer for Ireland. They had a lot to say about our Team, but sadly we had to trim a few bits to make this a short yet cheerful video. A longer version will be posted soon.
We are also glad to announce that EiraHost, Ireland's tech-startup that provides domain and hosting services is sponsoring ICU's Official 2022 Olympiad Blazers for the Irish Team.
Tune in for more updates as the tournament is set to begin shortly.
