St. Conleth’s is all about inclusion and participation, and though our top chess teams compete with the best in Leinster and Ireland (and, indeed, winning both those championships in recent years), we also have a very high participation rate in chess, covering a range of ages, abilities and experiences. Earlier this week, our Junior School Chess D Team were tough competitors but perfect gentlemen as they hosted a Leinster Schools ‘cluster’ competition. Everyone played three matches with Harrison Noble winning two of his! Well done to our whole team and our visitors, too. Everyone enjoyed themselves with an afternoon of challenging but friendly chess. Team members: Conor Daly, Sam MacKenzie, Harry Noble, Michael Davitt, Luke Gilligan, Harry Collins, Paddy Cosgrove and Rowan Flynn.
