Galway Chess Congress: 22 - 24 March 2019

Beat those Brexit blues! This is your chance to mark what will probably be the last weekend that the UK is in the EU by travelling to Galway to play chess without the hassle of visas and who knows what other sorts of annoyances that will be in store when there is a hard border. We have a prize fund of €2500, and we will even pay your prize to you in sterling should you wish. There are three sections: over 1800 (approximately 150 ECF), 1200-1800 (70-150) and under 1200 (under 70). Full information, including a guide to local accommodation, is available here, and you can enter online should you wish.
