Fatal Chess

The death of Dublin man Tom O'Gorman in a dispute over a game of chess has seized headlines and shocked Irish society. Mr O'Gorman, a prominent Catholic religious activist was killed during a frenzied attack at his home at the weekend.





His lodger has since appeared in court charged with Mr O'Gorman's murder.

Chess is very much the thinking persons's game. Long thought out exchanges being the order of the day rather than a murder orgy.



M.Schuster, winner of Irish Chess Championship 22 July 1952.
