About

We are a voluntary Junior Chess Club to cater for children from the North Kildare Area. Our current members come from Enfield, Kilcock, Clane, Maynooth, Leixlip and Surrounding Areas.

Our regular club night is Fridays 7.00 to 8.30pm in  St. Mary’s Boys’ National School
Moyglare Road, Maynooth. We also meet in St. Coca’s Scout Hall, Bridge Street, Kilcock, for League Matches.

We aim to provide a fun and friendly venue for children, 7 to 17 years of age, to learn and play chess.

The club is the brain child of two cub scouts (Darragh from Kilcock and Darius from Maynooth) who came up with the idea as a route to their chief scout award. Both are frustrated by the distances they have to travel to play chess and they want to share their love of the game with others.
