A new voluntary Junior Chess Club to cater for children from the North Kildare area commenced on Wednesday the 25th January 2017. The club meets in St. Coca’s Scout Hall, Bridge Street, Kilcock, between 7.00 and 8.30pm. (Map)
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.
