Notes towards an Irish chess bibliography

At present this is just a skeleton page.

We have:

Irish chess columns (chronological list).

Irish chess columns (annotated alphabetical list).

UK chess magazines up to 1914 (includes three Irish magazines).

The eventual aim is to compile an authoritative annotated bibliography of all printed chess works published in Ireland from the earliest times until, provisionally, 2011. This will possibly include columns as well as chess books and periodicals.

See also the bibliography pages on the site.

In the 18th century Ireland was a major centre for pirate book publication so many books first published in Britain, such as Hoyle's Games, were also copied here. We+-re there chess books too? Identifying these is a major issue. Can you help?
