Primary Teachers Promoting Chess

About Us

Ficheall is a non-profit organisation registered with the Companies Registration Office (CRO); No 671331.

Ficheall currently has a seven-member board of directors who oversee the operations of the organisation nationally. The Ficheall board works closely with selected coordinators in each geographical area of Ireland who, in turn, support teachers to promote chess in their school for the social and cognitive benefits it has for students.

All board members, area coordinators and chess leaders in schools are registered primary school teachers and give their time and skills on a voluntary basis.

A great mini game to learn the Knight's pattern and the concept of trapping a piece to win. One of our favourites!
