Dublin South President Sheila Horkan was delighted to visit Milltown Golf Club Bridge Club on Tuesday 19 September to present the 2016/17 Fanagan League trophies to the no less than three teams representing the club who had been successful in their respective sections. Sheila was welcomed by the Bridge Club President Jean Kelly, whose committee had laid on a splendid reception for the evening.
