Flive Chess Competition
will be played in two age categories – Junior (U16) and Adult. To enter the
competition please email arts@flive.co.uk with your name and age.

Old Portoran Samuel Beckett had a lifelong interest in chess and was a
keen player. The Beckett chess set designed by sculptor Alan Milligan first
appeared at the launch of the 2013 Happy Days International Beckett festival.
FLive celebrates its continued existence by organising a chess competition and finalists
will have the pleasure of moving the magnificent bronze pieces set on wooden
plinths around a giant 16ft by 16ft chess board. Each pawn is modelled on a
Beckett character or a prop used in his plays; boots and carrots from Waiting
for Godot, a banana from Krapp’s Last Tape, the pistol from Happy Days.
