“Capture the Moment, It’s Ficheall Chess Hour!”

To celebrate Ireland hosting the European Schools Chess Championship for the first ever, Ficheall wants your help to set a national record.

Win €300 worth of chess equipment for your school and add your school to the Ficheall chess hour map!

Have your class, or even whole school, play and be part of a national record attempt for the most primary school children playing chess simultaneously in Ireland on Thursday, May 30th from 10am to 11am.

We aim to unite children across the country whether you’re a seasoned player or just starting out. 

Enjoy a game of chess under the open sky, the classroom or maybe even online – whether it’s a friendly match, solving chess puzzles, or aiming for that perfect checkmate, the possibilities are endless. Don’t forget to capture these moments with your camera, making each move a timeless memory.

Participation is simple:
