Welcome to the new bridge season. The region has lots of exciting events planned - see the calendar for full details. Thanks to all those clubs who were represented at the opening Presidents' Night in the Templeogue Centre on Thursday 6 September.
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.
The Constitution of the Dublin South Region of the CBAI may be found here DSR Constitution.htm. This version is updated to include the amendment passed at the 2015 AGM.
The Dublin South Tournament Play & Procedures Committee (TP&PC) for the 2018/19 season comprises BJ O'Brien (Chairman), Mary Lindopp, and Marcin Rudzinski.
