A huge congratulations to all who took part. We hope that this can be an annual event and the prizewinners can go on to represent Inishowen at a National Level.


A very big thank you to Ms. Barbara McGuire, Ms. Clare Bradley and Ms. Aoife Cregan for accompanying their students and assisting with the tournament and to Ms. Shauna O’Neill for organising. Thank you to all the TY students that helped with the set-up, took photos and reported on the competition. Thank you to Mr. John McGuinness, who gave a lovely opening speech and presented the winners with their medals and trophies.

A big thank you to Annemarie McIntyre and Gary Duffy in the School Completion Programme for generously funding the event.


Chess has increased in popularity in recent years and is an excellent game for developing skills in problem solving, decision making, planning and creative thinking.
