Congratulations to Joe Farrell and Bryan Ryan, winners of the Kay Downes Trophy (Novice Pairs championship), held recently in Railway Union BC.
Welcome to the 2017/18 Dublin South bridge season. In particular, we welcome members of the region's three newly-affiliated clubs, Balally, Grange Golf Club, and Loreto.
A full calendar of the Dublin South events for the year, along with notable CBAI dates is available for download here Calendar 2017-18.docx
The Dublin South region officers for the 2017/18 season are: President - Sheila Horkan, Deputy President - Bríd Kemple, Honorary Secretary - Máiréad Ní Oistín, Honorary Treasurer - Kevin O'Dea, and County Development Officer - Deirdre Fallon.
There have been a number of changes to the Laws of Bridge with effect from 1 September - a summary of the key changes is available below on this page.
Pre-entry is required for all Dublin South competitions with the exception of the Kay Downes Trophy (Novice pairs).
We would encourage you to enter for our competitions via the CBAI website using the following link http://competitions.cbai.ie. You will need your own and your Partner's (or teammates') CBAI numbers. Alternatively, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or text our Regional Secretary Máiréad Ní Oistín at 087 6750393.
For the two 4Fun Teams qualifiers, the online entry system does NOT operate. Entries should be made by email as above or by text to our County Development Officer Deirdre Fallon at 087 6632111. In the case of the 4Fun Teams, we will accept incomplete entries (i.e. one, two, or three members of a team) and try to match them up with other entrants. This is not always possible, so apologies in advance if this is the case with your entry - but we are nearly always successful, so don't be deterred from entering.
A number of changes to the Laws of Bridge have taken effect in Ireland with effect from 1 September 2017. For anyone wishing to familiarise themselves with the changes, our National Tournament Director Fearghal O'Boyle has very kindly prepared this summary (based on a prior document prepared by New Zealand Director Murray Wiggins) 2017 Laws Changes.pdf
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED DUE TO THE WEATHER CONDITIONS, AND WILL NOW BE HELD ON SUNDAY 25 MARCH.
The Regent Academy is holding an Open Novice Pairs competition, with a separate beginners' section if numbers permit, in their premises on Waterloo Road on Sunday 25 March, starting at 1:30 p.m., with all Novice players welcome to attend - a great opportunity to venture out into external competition if you haven't already done so. Pre-entry is required, and full details are available here Regent Academy Open Novice Pairs.pdf
