Community Games Chess

On Sunday the Ballon/Rathoe community games chess team went to Meath to play in the Leinster semi-finals.  Our team played Dublin (the all-ireland champions).  Meath played Laois.  Meath won.  The other match was a draw, but they cancelled out one match so Dublin won.  Then Dublin won the final. We were sad but we got Supermacs and ice cream on the way home! It was a good day
