Junior Chess Teams’ Last Tune-Up Before Finals

Junior School Chess Team A

Chess has a proud history at St. Conleth’s and our current Junior School teams are certainly worthy of that tradition.  We have two teams at the top of the standings heading into Finals Day on March 12th, and both have one more tune-up before the big day.  The Chess B team are playing St. Catherine’s B team this Wednesday at 1.30 in St. Conleths.  (To be fair to the so-called ‘B’ Team, being a B chess player at St. Conleth’s is making to being a bench player at Barcelona!)  And the Chess A team are playing Star of the Sea at 1.30 on Thursday, also in St. Conleth’s.  On a separate but related note, Sean Hunter has been selected for the U-14 Irish Chess panel, and his brother Eoin has been selected for the U-12 panel!  Well done to both and to Richard Sheahan and his father, Mike, who came in second at an Alex Baburin-run parent & child competition during the midterm break.  Enjoy the rugby tomorrow but remember that we have warriors of all kinds at St. Conleth’s!
