All about us

The Bridge Centre is a purpose-built complex located on Templeogue Road, opposite Cheeverstown House. The Centre is used exclusively for playing Bridge, and is home to five different Bridge clubs.

Evening Bridge takes place each night Monday to Friday. Evening Bridge is confined to members of the Bridge Centre and is run by one of the five clubs. (A visitor may play up to four times provided that they are signed in by a member of the Centre.) Please note that evening Bridge starts at 7:30pm and that all players are asked to be seated at their table by 7:20pm so that play can start on time.

Morning Bridge is organised by the Bridge Centre on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week and play starts at 10:00am. Please note, however, that Morning Bridge does not take place on Bank Holidays.

Morning Bridge is open to all Bridge players, both members and non members of the Bridge Centre are welcome, and you can come without a partner. On some weekends there are Regional or National competitions run in the Centre. 

The Centre also runs its own Inter-Club Team of Four competition and the Marie Moran Pairs competition.

Treaure Hunt and Beetle Drive
Treaure Hunt and Beetle Drive

 

WHAT IS A BEETLE DRIVE?

 

The game of Beetle is a dice game, with no limit on the number of players.

The aim of the game is to draw a beetle, with body, head, legs, feelers, eyes before the other competitors.

A 6 is necessary to start the process by drawing the body.  People take it in turn to throw the dice, adding body parts as they score.  Of course, you can’t add eyes or feelers without a head!, nor a head without a body.

A Beetle Drive is a parlour game, played in groups.  The best score in each group moves up a group after each round, and the lowest score moves down, so you meet everyone at some stage.

An entertaining evening is in store.  Do join in.

A Poem for The Christmas Party for Tuesday Morning Bridge

 

                                   BRIDGE AT TEMPLEOGUE 

                                  Tuesday bridge at Templeogue:

                                  A weekly treat for one and all.

                                  With  Ann and scary Valerie in charge,

                                  There's good behaviour in the hall.  

 

                                  My partner Peter is a gem,

                                  A novice with a master's flair.

                                  He bids with cheery confidence

                                  And manufactures tricks from air.

 

                                  What better way to spend our time,

                                  With doubles, slams and winter fun.

                                  So cherish partners, play the game

                                  And happy Christmas everyone.

 

                                  John Fanagan                                       12 December 2017

Thanks Mary!

Mary Pierce who has helped out immensely over the years in organising morning bridge is retiring. We would like to thank Mary for all her help over the years and wish her all the best for the future.

 

Thank You Evelyn
Thank You Evelyn

Evelyn Sharkey recently decided to retire from Wednesday Morning Bridge. She will be very much missed, and on the occasion of her retirement, Joe Moran presented her with a bouquet to thank her for her marvellous commitment to morning bridge from the start, and wished her well  for the future.
