Launch for chess book 'as Gaeilge'

DULEEK woman, Una O'Boyle launched 'Ficheall', the first-ever book about chess written as Gaeilge at the Boyne Valley last Sunday.

The 156-page full colour book not only provides chess instruction through Irish but is also a dictionary and Irish language tool.

Ficheall, which means chess in Irish, was written by Una with assistance from COGG and An Coiste Tearmaiochta.

'The thing I am most proud of is the writing and creating of the chess language in Irish. We are bringing chess to the Irish speaker and Irish to the chess players,' she says. Ficheall is available to buy on www.ficheall. com.
