Very sad news via Jim O'Neill of Wandering Dragons club that Eoin Campbell passed away last month (27/11/2018)

Sad news. I didn't know him socially but our paths crossed frequently over the chess board and I was always struck that his positional understanding made him a very difficult opponent who could beat anyone on his day. Sad to think we will have no more battles over the board. RIP
