The Irish Draughts Association

The Irish Draughts Association was founded in 1976. The Association promotes Draughts in Ireland by running competitions.

The IDA is a member association of the World Checkers & Draughts Federation. We are part players’ association, part regulatory body, and part fan club.

The IDA has organised the Irish Championships each October Bank Holiday Weekend since 1977. This is the main event on the Irish Draughts calendar, which attracts players of all standards from every part of Ireland, as well as players from overseas.

The IDA is also responsible for two match play titles, i.e. The Irish 3-Move Match Play Title and The Irish GAYP Match Play Title. In addition, the organisation has hosted World Title matches as well as qualifying competitions to determine Official Challengers to play in World Title matches.

It is hoped to steadily build up the content and variety on this site over time. And last, but certainly not least, a word of thanks to the Scottish Draughts Association and Graham Young for the help provided in setting up this web site. Most of the results& reports are provided by the SDA, and are being acknowledged here rather than individually.
