The home of chess in Galway
This is the official chess site of the Galway Chess Club.
Galway is a city on the west coast of Ireland with a population of ~75,000. It is known for its attraction to tourists and bohemians alike. Its a gateway to some of Irelands most magnificent wilderness areas such as Connemara, the Burren and Lough Corrib. The city itself has several narrow pedestrian streets with bustling pubs and restaurants. Artists of all descriptions often line these streets during the summer months.
All of the above of course is bad news for chess! Too many distractions. Those of us who are involved however are determined to keep chess alive and kicking in the west. Explore this section for further general information.
