The [ext] Irish Correspondence Championship is organised by the Irish Go Association. It began as a 9x9 competition, and later evolved into being played on full size boards. In its current format, it is normally played as a Round Robin split into different sections on the basis of ability, and or finishing position from the previous year - and or entry numbers. Games take place on either DGS or OGS.

To Enter

  • Sorry! Entry is shut for 2018, but there is always 2019.


  • Try to start your games as quickly as you can. At the end of January you will receive a friendly warning if you haven't started. Stricter warnings will follow :) Let Ian know if your opponent doesn't respond to a challenge.
  • The tournament now has a prize thanks to the IGA Committee. Should be the game and review with a professional, but yet to confirm the details.
