Mark, The Chessbud, taught chess in our school last year. Word spread quickly about his classes and in no time the class was full of happy, focused boys ready to take each other on in games. We are delighted to have chessbud in De la Salle BNS! Doireann Hester, Principal, St. Patrick's De la Salle Boys National School, Kilkenny City
"Diarmuid greatly enjoyed Easter Chess Camp. It was definitely the highlight of his holiday. He said he loved the way the day was organised, including puzzles, problem solving, skills and finishing the end of the day with a tournament. He also enjoyed interacting and playing with the other children, break time was great fun too." Maria, Kilkenny
