The AGM of the Leinster Chess Union will take place at 7pm on Tuesday 13th June in the usual venue of the United Arts Club, home of Dublin Chess Club.

The last day of the leagues saw the club secure its first ever double – indeed, the first double achieved by any club across Leinster in five years – as we took home both the Heidenfeld Trophy and the O’Hanlon Cup. Elsewhere, five players ended up going unbeaten through the season, having played five games or more, while we finished sixth in the O’Hanlon for the fourth year running.
