Update to our Members

My year in office is almost over and I can report that my committee has been very busy working on your behalf.

Our teams did fantastically well in the national finals and both the Kelbourne Cup and the Banker's Trophy went to teams from the region.

Locally, we had a great turn out for the Greystones Open and the Memorial Trophy. The results of both are posted on this site

The region's newest new competition, the Massey Bros League final will take place on May 14th in Foxrock. Good luck to all the teams taking part and I hope we have many more teams participating next year.

Finally we still have the Muldoon Cup, the Sonya Britton Trophy and the Arklow this season and I hope to see you all there.

Well done to all theour intermediate qualifiers and look here to see details of the Intermediate Teams results..

 

March is Novice Month 2017

Eileen O'Doherty Memorial and Patricia Rossiter Herman Trophies

The Intermediate Bs and Novices pairs competitions took place in  Dun Laoghaire Bridge Centre on Sunday 12th March. Unfortunately, there was a very low turn-out for both competitions. This could have been because of the new day or the new location.  It certainly was not because of John Royds who again this year did a fantastic job directing both competitions and putting all the players at their ease.

 

 

The Eileen O'Dorerty Memorial trophy went to Marie McGarry, for the second year, and her partner Alexi Silva.

 

 

Marion Fox & Julia Rayel won the Patricia Rossiter Herman..

 

The prizes for the competitions went to:

Eileen O'Doherty Memorial

  1. Mary McGarry & Alex Silva

  2. Hal Hosford & Theresa O'Carroll

Patricia Rossiter Herman

  1. Marion Fox & Julia Rayel

  2. Eleanor Callanan & Margaret MacGhabhann
