The Irish rugby union and cricket teams field players from the entire
island of Ireland. The chess team would be following that same course.
Those teams are multi-denominational, I should add.
Basically, though, since the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland
are under two different governments, with some degree of hostility to
each other, this is not highly practical.
AFAIK they have been playing in this cross-border way ever since the
respective teams were founded, almost certainly over a 100 years ago,
and there has never been a problem.
It has probably solved more problems than it has ever created.
