Welcome to the 2018/19 Season

The Dublin South officers for 2018/19 are:

President: Bríd Kemple (pictured above with her predecessor, Sheila Horkan)

Deputy President: Ciara Gleeson

Honorary Secretary: Máiréad Ní Oistín

Honorary Treasurer: Kevin O'Dea

The calendar of Dublin South events for the 2018/19 season is available on this website, and a printed copy for your club noticeboards is available for download here DSR Calendar 2018-19.docx.  Please make every effort to encourage your club members to support the regional events if they can.  Details of how to enter are set out in a separate panel below.

The season started in fine style with a very well-attended Presidents' Night in the Templeogue Bridge Centre on 6 September, at which Dublin South President Bríd Kemple welcomed the club officers, introduced the new regional committee, and laid out the calendar of events for the year. The clubs also collected their CBAI update packs for 2018/19.  There was plenty of discussion and debate, and the evening finished off with tasty sandwiches and a glass of wine (or equivalent).  Our thanks to all those clubs who attended.

We welcome comments and suggestions on the usefulness of this website, and are more than happy to promote relevant events being run by your club (e.g. open competitions or charity nights) if you would like us to to.  Just give us the details and we will put them up on the website.




  4Fun Teams RDS 2018

Brid Kemple, President of Dublin South Region was on hand to welcome everyone and to present the prizes to winners and runners up in each section (see pictures below).

Thanks to all the DSR committee for all their hard work on making this a successful and enjoyable night and to tournament director Maurice O'Leary.
