An unlikely couple you might say, but they are both the 2015 Community Games Connaught Champions! Well done to the 2 teams that are through to the National Festival in Athlone this August.
Ballinasloe Chess Team came away victorious in Sligo on the 5th July, beating reigning champions Kilteevan (Roscommon) 4-1. Well done to the team and of course their very dedicated managers Darren and Tommy and all at the Chess Club.
