    Hello there, I cannot seem to find any sort of chess clubs in Athlone/Moate/Tullamore area. The two closest clubs are in Drumlish in Longford and one in Mullingar. Surely there have to be more than that? For such a huge area. Anyway thought I'd ask as I've only recently moved to the area and I am looking for a club. Perhaps there are some casual get togethers in a library or gaa club that may not be advertised online? Please ask around and let me know.

  • Ballinasloe?

    They play home league games in Athlone IT, so might be suitable. They've a facebook page here.

    Ballinasloe is a bit of a trek but Athlone is grand. Is there any club in Athlone itself that plays casually during the week?




  • Drop them a line and see I guess. As I say, the club's called Ballinasloe but they play in Athlone and maybe meet there too; I'm not sure. Their Facebook suggests they meet on Wednesdays

    I think there is one in Tullamore library, I'd love if there was a junior club I could bring my kids to
