Definitely a problem. And they would be rated first.

He would lose 9.2 or 11.2, depending on whether the November or December ratings applied, I think.

Killian has played and won round 6 of the league which was enough to get over 2300.

That'll do it so.

Although I see there's one game still adjourned from round 5; if that's still outstanding, the two rounds may be rated after the IM norm tournament?

Either way, well done!

How were the titles of Irish 50+ and Irish 65+ champions awarded?

For 50+, John Delaney and Jonathan O'Connor tied on 5.5 (with Robin Moss, who was ineligible for the title).

For 65+, Tim Harding, Eamon Keogh, Pete Morriss and Jim Murray tied on 5.

Shared titles? Rapid playoffs? Median Buchholz etc.?

Title/cash shared, but tie break for the trophy I think it was.

It seems that there is no trophy for the over-65s, but I was told that I had won the title on tie-break. Jonathan was awarded the over-50s trophy and title, also on tie-break.

I have the old DeLoughry trophy and can present it as the o 65 trophy if no one objects.

Is there not the JJ Walsh Cup for the over 65s? Who has that if it wasn't there last week?

I thought the perpetual trophy for the overall winner was presented by Ray Byrne two years ago. Is that the one in your picture?
There was a cup (to keep) for the 65+ winner in 2018 when ICU still had their deal with Awards and Gifts, and last year Tony Doyle was presented with a small cup (to keep).

The Ray Byrne Cup is for the Over 50s.

(Don't know how to resize the image below unfortunately)

The trophy for the Leinster Senior is missing too. It should be a simple enough matter to ask the previous winners where it went. I am pretty sure that it is one of two people who has it so it shouldn't be too hard for the ICU to track it down.
I could be wrong but I think that the Leinster Intermediate trophy might be missing too.

The Drogheda Chess Club (who used to run the old 60+ veterans tournament) should maybe be asked about the J. J. Walsh Cup.
It certainly was not in evidence at any of the three Seniors championships so far run by ICU.

Drogheda used a different trophy for the veterans' event though. It's the one below. I thought the Ray Byrne and JJ Walsh Cups were both acquired when the event switched to the New Year. That said, while the Ray Byrne photo is in a hotel room, the JJ Walsh photo isn't, and I'm not sure where it was when I took that.

That looks like a turd on a piece of wood.
