Irish Go Online

Tue, 02/02/2016 - 02:18

Playing Go online is a great way to learn, improve and generally get more games in!

This week, we’re launching an online club as a fun way to play with other players in (or connected with) Ireland. This is well-suited to those of us who usually play online, or who can’t make it to face-to-face meetings as often as we’d like.

We especially want to teach and encourage new players, and to be a welcoming place to learn how to play, so if you have friends who would like to start, please let them know!

Details here.
