Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-04-04  kostich in time: O'Hanlon had a long career- he must have played SOME good games..couldnt Chessgames find any? Interesting, the Irish have never been that strong at Chess.
Jun-20-09  waustad: I was guessing that there were two, but he really did live and play for many years.
Apr-23-16  TheFocus: Happy birthday, John O'Hanlon.
Dec-31-17  Cibator: <kostich in time: Interesting, the Irish have never been that strong at Chess.>
