The Irish Invented Chess!

The Irish Invented Chess!

ByBrian Nugent

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
For over three centuries a controversy has raged as to the exact origins of 'fidchell' - in modern Irish 'ficheall' - or Irish chess, a game played in Ireland from biblical times. This book argues that that game of fidchell, or brannaimh, was recognisably our modern chess. It also raises disturbing questions about the real history surrounding the Lewis Chess find.
