The 2016 Irish Intervarsities
The 2016 Irish Intervarsities took place in University College Cork and had a good mix of players from different Universities with a wide array of playing strength, ranging from unrated to strong club players. A good tournament seemed to be had by all and hopefully some of the unrated players will see this as a stepping stone into the general Irish chess scene in the near future. A full report by Keegan O'Mahoney can be seen here. The final placings can be seen here. The event itself came down to the very last match and two of Munster's strongest players were in contention: Hugh Doyle and Keegan O'Mahoney. Their game from round 3 can be seen here. The event was sponsored byAwardsAndGifts.ie and some of the trophies that were on offer can be seen below.
