Sad news

We are sorry to tell you of the death of our valued member Sean Cahill. Sean died on 1st August and we extend our condolances to Margaret and his family. It was always a great pleasure to meet Sean at the bridge table as he was such a friendly, good-humoured man and, while he usually took a "top" from me, I always left his table feeling the better for having met him. May he rest in peace.
