Champion chess event
2 chess champions remained undefeated after taking on 25 challengers in Wexford's 1st. Chess Simultaneous in the Talbot Hotel.
Former Spanish International player Manuel GARDENES & Czech Republic chess instructor Miroslav GALLIK were tested by players of all ages and abilities.
Their opponents fought valiantly, producing some tense games which went on into the night. No-one was a match for either man although a few players draws.
Prizes were presented to adult players Gennadity GALUSHCHENKO and Eddie HUMPHREY and to young participants Joshua REDMOND and Dean COPELAND.
Wexford Chess Club member Miroslav and Gorey member Manuel were full of praise for the skills of some of their younger opponents.
Organiser Paul TIERNEY is hoping to stage another chess event at Christmas. He thanked Senan O'REILLY and Wexford Chess Club for hosting the 'simultaneous'. Chess is enjoying ian increase in popularity throughout the county specially among school children.
