Objectives & Constitution
  Objectives of Dublin South Region

Bridge in the Republic of Ireland is administered by the Contract Bridge Association of Ireland (CBAI).  The CBAI is divided into thirteen separate geographic regions, responsible for the promotion and administration of bridge within their respective areas, of which Dublin South is one.  Each region has its own Committee of unpaid volunteers who undertake this task.

The primary objectives of the Dublin South region are:

To promote bridge within the region;

To support the clubs of the region and to ensure that they have access to adequate human resources (teachers, Tournament Directors) for their needs;

To ensure that bridge in the region is administered in accordance with the regulations and policies (including grading policies) of the CBAI;

To organise and run tournaments within the region, including the required national qualification events;

To encourage all bridge clubs to affiliate to the CBAI. 

We welcome at all times comments or queries from members of Dublin South clubs, either in person, by telephone or email, or using the "Contact Us" section of this website.  In addition, if you would like us to publicise an open event or charity function being held in your club, please let us know the details.
