Castlebar Chess

Castlebar Junior Chess Club meets on Friday nights at the Adult Education Centre, Newtown, Castlebar. The club year corresponds to the school year - September through to June, with activities suspended during the holidays.
For the more Senior enthusiasts there is a Wednesday night session (From 8.00 pm on) held in Flannellys of Ellison St. This generally runs from October through to Easter. While the adult session has a very recreational side to it - away weekend congresses and home based lightning tournaments - the Junior Club has always been highly competitive. Over the years our youngsters have captured National Community Games titles (3 times), Irish Life U-16 All-Ireland team championship, All - Ireland primary Schools title, individual under - 13 and under - 16 National championships.
Next year the club will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. Members still actively involved - administratively, on the underage teams are Myles Gilvarry, Joe Mc Donnell, and John Bourke.
