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.
The lessons are even linked to the primary school SPHE curriculum! https://t.co/O3QDe06AM8
@Ficheall_ie is serious about promoting chess as an inclusive platform for students to engage with one another in Donegal.
We look forward to the first Feile Fichille tournaments in Donegal this March! https://t.co/2Wa9iViUie
