Therefore, with the exception of newcomers or players visiting from overseas, local players should already be paid-up members of the Irish Chess Union [ICU] or Ulster Chess Union [UCU]. The 2023/2024 season begins on 1st September 2023, ending on 31st August 2024.
ICU rates for under 18s are €10 per season and for adults €35.
A full list of ICU membership rates are available here:

The UCU Treasurer is present at almost all the events for anyone wishing to pay in cash. It costs £25 per season. Concessionary rate is £10 for Under 18s, full-time students, pensioners, unemployed.
