The home of chess in Galway
Only two Galway players went up to Dublin at Easter for the Dublin International, but one of them, Kevin Fitzpatrick left with the grading prize in the Challengers event (under 2000 FIDE). Kevin was the lowest rated player in that section, but held his own consistently. This was a very fine achievement.
Unfortunately, our other entrant, Pete Morriss, had a poor tournament in the Masters Section, and the less said about it the better.
