Ficheall aims to promote the playing of chess in Irish primary schools using a 3-stage approach:
Ficheall provides support and lesson plans for teachers to teach chess in their class or as an extra-curricular activity and establish an in-school chess league.
Ficheall organises one-day regional tournaments for schools to enter teams of 8 players and play against students from other schools. Its all about children playing chess!
Ficheall organise one-day tournaments for school chess teams who perform to a high standard at the regional tournaments.
