Thanks for the reports, Kevin. See you at the 65+ seniors in 2018, I guess. That's if your birth year is correct on the FIDE ratings site - some are wrong or missing. (No birth year there for Richard Hall, for example.)

Meanwhile, the top two matches have been drawn 2-2 in under half an hour. Longest game 11 moves!

I am hoping to arrange Irish 65+ teams for next year at either the Europeans (Greece) or Worlds (Radebeul, near Dresden) or perhaps both, so if any Irish-eligible players are reading this, please get in touch via email or on the thread I started on the 2016 events.
We are still trying to find contact details for a few people.
