  Dionysius1: It seems a shame that there's no substantive kibitzing here, for such a strong Irish player.

Is Tom any relation to Brendan O'Gorman, who used to play in leagues around London, whom I could get sound middle game positions against but never quite manage to beat?

I think he had an interesting sideline in photographing the tournaments he played in.

  Dionysius1: Ah, marvellous. Thanks for the link!
Apr-22-22  Gallicrow: There's an interview of Tom, by his sister, Alice, here:

He doesn't mention a chess playing relative so I don't think he is related to Brendan O'Gorman.

Apr-23-22  Granny O Doul: On the other hand, this might easily have become the baseball discussion page, had either Tom Gorman had a more memorable career.
