Ulster player Cathal Murphy stumbled upon this super old photograph in the 1970s Armagh Memories Facebook page and sent it to me. It was dated November 1976 but was actually taken in February 1981 at the event I had previously written about in Korchnoi and the car.
I was previously unaware of the existence of the photo. It was therefore a real pleasure over 30 years after the event to see the great Korchnoi just about to make his first move against me in the simultaneous exhibition. The young lad two boards down from me is the future two-time Irish champion Niall Carton. Can anyone identify other people featured?
