Ireland were generally mid-table in all sections of the Glorney, which finished in Scotland this morning, but there was some good performances from the Benildus representatives.
Brendan Lyons has finished his campaign with Ireland’s Over-50s in Dresden with a draw against a Singaporean IM, while four Benildus players are heading off to Scotland this week to play for Ireland’s U-12s.
Brendan Lyons’ excellent win against an FM helped the Irish over 50s team to a 2-2 draw against Leipzig in the World Senior Championships in Dresden.
Two Benildus players have been selected as the ICU representatives at the usual series of international individual underage tournaments across Europe later in the year.
St Benildus will have four of the six players on this year’s Stokes team – the Ireland U-12 team at the Glorney in Scotland – as well as both the named reserves.
There’s a total of 9 Benildus players on the Irish U-14 and U-12 coaching panels announced this week.
