The European Youth Championships began yesterday in Bratislava, with three Benildus players among the five-strong Irish entry.
The 2019 Irish Championships – the strongest ever championships – gets underway in Stillorgan today. There’s four Benildus players involved, and you can watch all the live games here as Stephen takes on Tony Fox, Gerry faces bottom seed Darragh Moran, Brendan Lyons plays Stephen Moran, Kevin McHugh plays board 4 against Mark Quinn IM, while Tim has a derby of sorts against former Benildus player Joe Ryan FM.
Best of luck to all!
Benildus took away first place, second place, third place and a grading prize at Drogheda at the weekend.
There was no silverware for the club in the Irish Juniors this year, with two more runners-up medals and another defeat against a familiar foe to add to the collection.
