    Oh, I don't know, I reckon there could be contention for one of the top three placed from Benildus...


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 2,159 Mod ✭✭✭✭ L1m1tless


    Maybe so! It will be fun to see how right or wrong I am come April.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 40,053 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Sparks


    Well, if you're not having fun... eh, you're probably doing it wrong :)

    Predictions sounds fun!

    1 - Gonzaga. Has to be their year - surely?
    2 - Trinity. As strong as last year by all accounts.
    3 - St Benildus :)
    4 - Elm Mount

    Relegation -
    11 - Phibsboro? Could be in trouble if that flyer at the City of Dublin is anything to go by. Rathmines have shown recently no club is too big to go down
    12 - Elm Mount B. Always hard to look beyond the Bs in the Armstrong in particular

    First result - Balbriggan 0-1 St Benildus (rest of the games on Saturday)

    1. St Benildus - addition of Steven Brady could make the difference. Are there bottom/middle boards strong enough tho?
    2. Gonzaga - Where else!
    3. Trinity - Loss of Juri Firstov will be a big blow

    11.Dun Laoghaire - Expect the second relegation place to between Dun L, Phibsboro and Dublin.
    12. Elm Mount B - Will surely lose every game but still pick up a few points off every team.

    Gonzaga in 2nd is the only thing I'd be sure about.

    Elm Mount B 3-5 Elm Mount A
    To say I'm not happy would, clearly, be an understatement !

    Elm Mount B 3-5 Elm Mount A

    I'll bet you didn't hang your queen while two pawns up like I did though. :o

    St Benildus v Kilkenny postponed due to the death of John Bradley.

    Wrote a series of lovely articles on the history of Kilkenny Chess Club only this year.

    Will be a loss for the game, and for Kilkenny as a club - and only a couple of weeks before the Kilkenny Congress too.

    RIP. :(

    Gonzaga 7 - 1 Elm Mount B.


    Very sad to hear of John's passing. I'll miss his oratory at the end of the Kilkenny Congress.

    Bloody hell. Gonzaga are flying. 28½ points in their last four games. Must be a record?

    (I know we were pretty pleased with 27 points in four games in 2009/10!)

    It'll make coming 2nd all the more difficult to take...

    Rathmines 1½-6½ St Benildus

    Bit harsh on Rathmines apparently.

    Included a knight and bishop mate!
