Wexford Chess Jnr. Champ.
The Co Wexford Spring Chess Competition for Primary Schools took place at the Brandon House Hotel, New Ross last Saturday. Organiser Seamus Halpenny was delighted with the huge turnout of children from throughout the county. They travelled from Duncannon, Gorey, Rosslare and points in between for this, the first County-level competition of the year. First overall was David Remenyik (St Joseph’s Primary School, Gorey) with Ovidius Saudergas (New Ross) taking silver and Ryan Callaghan (St Joseph’s, Gorey) bronze. The overall Best School Award went to St Joseph’s Primary School, Gorey.
Some of the regulars at Wexford Library were in action and all acquitted themselves very well. Lucas Stan, Matthew Molloy and Hugh Boggan won their categories. Matthew McSherry took bronze in his category. Also performing well were Leana Hofmann, Louise Doyle, Darragh Moran and Padraic O'Carroll.
Well done to all!
