Galway Chess Congress 2022: 11 to 13 March

This is advance notice that next year’s Galway Chess Congress will be held on the weekend of 11 to 13 March 2022.  We very much hope that we will be able to hold it in person, at the Menlo Park Hotel, Galway, although of course there is no knowing what the covid situation will be then, and if it is not possible or advisable to hold it in person it will be held online, as it was this year [2021].  We aim to make a decision about this early in January 2022.

Update 22nd January: Following the government’s lifting of restrictions on 21 January, we can confirm that this event will be going ahead in person at the Menlo Park Hotel. We will be ready to take your entries very soon; we’ll announce here when that has been done.
