Our chess club is a very popular lunchtime activity in the school. It is held in Ms. Coveney’s classroom on Mondays and Thursdays. Although “regulars” from all years come in to play, it is particularly well attended by first years. It is a great way for them to get to know each other, and many of the players become firm friends. A number of TY students opt to do chess as part of their Gaisce award too. Internal competitions are run throughout the year.
