Information regarding the Galway Chess Congress, past and present, can be accessed from this page.
The Galway Chess Congress is one of the four main annual weekenders in Ireland. For many years we have been hosting the event in one of the leading hotels in Galway. The date was originally in early to mid-October, but we have recently switched to a mid-Spring date. In 2019, the competition will be held from March 22nd-24th.
The 2017 Masters champion is GM Oleg Korneev.
