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.

Constitution of Ficheall 2020

And it should be taken seriously because chess is serious about inclusion!

@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!
Féile Fichille tournaments organise groups of local schools together for a day playing chess. The day is a celebration of the students' and teachers' learning through chess lessons in the preceding months -

Huge thanks to @BhrideScoil for hosting!
