A tournament report for the 2008 Irish championship has now been added to the archive here. The champion was Alexander Baburin, who was playing in his first, and so far only, championship, after finishing joint first with Alon Greenfeld, who was ineligible for the title.
We’re fortunate to have an almost complete set of games: only one of the 134 games is missing. We’re even more fortunate because of the number of interesting games: the report’s selection contains 22 games, and even at that another dozen could easily have been added.
This report fills the most recent gap in the coverage of the Irish championship. There is much information available about many other championships, and rounding out the coverage will be a priority in 2015.
