1st Email Olympiad (Oly XIV): Irish results
ICCF Olympiad XIV, Prelim. #4, 2000-2002
This is the first Email Olympiad. Play began on September 25, 2000. CC-IM Desmond Taylor replaced Gillen for the last four games on board 3.
Our boards 4 and 6 have done well, and on board 2 Neil Johnson put in a solid 50% against tough opposition, missing the IM norm by half a point.

correspondence chess activities for Irish players living at home or abroad.
A non-profit-making organisation, we run the national championship, Irish
teams and other activities. We are affiliated to ICCF
and the Irish Chess Union (which controls "over-the-board" chess here).
