Winter 2019 Update from Ficheall.ie:
Registration closed before mid-term break and we have an amazing 88 schools from around County Cork registered (up from 38 in 2017/2018 and 62 in 2018/2019).
88 schools is approximately 30% of all Cork mainstream schools and we're looking forward to breaking the 50% mark in the coming years!
We are currently in the process of organising venues and dates for the one-day chess tournaments for all the schools involved. We will have over 1,800 students represent their school in chess in January and February 2020. Each school will attend one of the 13 regional Ficheall.ie tournaments.
