Gerry Graham gave detailed round-by-round reports in CHESS IRELAND - NEWS, Mar-Jun 2000. Mark Heidenfeld extended the family connection with the Irish championship, following in the footsteps of his father Wolfgang, Irish champion in 1958, 1963, 1964, 1967, 1968, and 1972. Colm Daly was seeking to become only the second person ever to win the Irish championship in three consecutive years (quick: who was the first?; still the only one!) but fell well short.
