Fanagan League
Fanagan League

The Fanagan League is a long-standing and much-loved feature of the Dublin South bridge calendar.  Kindly sponsored since 1998 by Fanagans Funeral Directors, it is an inter-club team of four competition, run on a round-robin format, on a home and away basis, across a number of grade and age categories.  The objectives of the league are to promote teams bridge and to encourage inter-club competition.  The players who have played in it over the years have really enjoyed it, and have found it a great way to visit other clubs and make new friendships (albeit competitive ones!),  It is traditional for the home team to provide a light supper for their visitors during matches, and the league concludes each year with an end-of-season gala event and prize-giving, with food and wine provided - this year's end-of-season event will be on Sunday 29 April 2018, in Templeogue.

In 2017/18 there are leagues for the following categories:


Intermediate B

Intermediate A

Confined Master (less than 100 National Points)

Senior Intermediate (aged 60+ years and of Intermediate A or B grade)

The Fanagan League gala final night was held in the Templeogue Bridge Centre on Sunday 7 May, and as ever a great night was had by all.  Our sincere thanks to Fanagans Funeral Directors, the long-standing sponsors of this event - without their support it would not be possible - especially to Orla Fanagan who attended the final night and presented the prizes to the winners, including a team she played on herself in the case of the Novice competition, and to the League Co-Ordinator, Ann Fitzmaurice, for her excellent stewardship and organisation of both the final night and the event as a whole.
