    Hi all, anyone out there that can suggest a chess club in Dublin suitable for a beginner, after playing here for a year, I am going to take the plunge into the OTB world. West of the city or city centre is good.
    Hope this is the right place to ask this question.
    Thanks

    Not sure, I don't think he mentions chess in Ulysses.

    thanks, sorry i should have been clearer, finding a club is the easy bit, there are a shed loads - I am wondering which one would be a good place to start.

    I think Elm Mount might be a good choice. They have teams all the way down the leagues and I think they do some coaching. They're in Drumcondra, near Tolka Park.

    Oh, he does. Parnell's brother makes a brief appearance playing chess in Bewley's.
