Checkmate for Scoil Chlochair Mhuire, Carrigtwohill


Scoil Chlochair Mhuire, Carrigtwohill’s newly formed chess team competed in their first Chess Tournament on February 12th last in the Carrigtwohill Community Hall. Ten teams from across East Cork took part and the ‘Carrig Queens’ did our school proud by finishing the competition in the top half of the leaderboard. Their coaches Mr. Quinlan and Mr. O’Callaghan were delighted with the girls’ performance and a special mention goes to Eimear O’Connell and Molly O’Driscoll for finishing 4th and 6th respectively out of a field of 80 competitors. Well done to the whole team!
