The previous post set out the history of my reporting on chess in Northern Ireland. Since then I have moved to Scotland and no longer have the day-to-day contact with NI chess events to justify continuing a contemporary blog on Ulster chess.

So I have decided to evacuate the material appearing in NI Chess News and you will now find it all of it at the Ulster Chess Chronicle, alongside the more historical research that already appears there.

The return of the Ulster Chess Chronicle

In 1999, to provide an internet presence for chess in Northern Ireland, I started a website called the Ulster Chess Chronicle. It was a mix of chess results, news, articles and history. It also included the official webpages of the Ulster Chess Union.

After the UCU set up its own website in 2004, I still continued with the Chronicle but on a reduced scale. A couple of years after that I decided to start this blog which allowed me to put a more personal slant on things. When the service provider for the Ulster Chess Chronicle discontinued its service in 2014, I moved the contemporary results & reports and articles to NI Chess News.

I've now re-started the history part at a renewed Ulster Chess Chronicle. There will be brand new posts on the history of Ulster chess, but my intention is also to incorporate, albeit re-formatted and often with additions and revisions, all the old material.
