The RAC in London, better known as a motorists' organisation, also have a chess club. They sent a six person team to Dublin to compete against DCC on June 18. Their captain was Stephen Meyler who is a former member of DCC and who organised the event in conjunction with Eddie O'Connor who captained the Dublin team. Although beaten 4-2 in the match, RAC have invited Dublin to visit London for a return match in 2018. The photo shows Brian O'Mullane and Colm Egan in deep thought during the battle.
