Some photos of the early days of the Club

Kevin Dunne, Luke Fitzgerald Jo Bannon and Celaine Rath were the founder members of Confey Castle Bridge Club.  Luke (R.I.P.)  was a founding Vice President of the Club and passed away on Christmas Eve 2015.

These players met whilst learning to play bridge in Confey Bridge Club and decided to practice together in their own homes.  After a few months  the numbers grew to 12 and they began to look for outside premises and so Confey Castle was born..  In 2012 after one year the numbers had grown to 26 and now five years later, the Club has developed to a stage were we have full membership with a waiting list in progress.  Confey Castle Bridge Club is affiliated to CBAI.
