Club History
Club History

Our Club History: Foxhall Bridge Club was founded in the early 1970's by Mrs. Una Phelan, and was originally known as Bayside Bridge Club. The club first began to operate from the committee room in Bayside Church, and Mr. Michael Moroney volunteered to give lessons to beginners . As numbers grew the club moved to the pre-fab school where we played for a few years before moving to the Marine Hotel in Sutton. Following that the club moved to the Old Sheeling Hotel on the Howth Road near Foxfield. With the growing popularity of the game and the number of people taking lessons it was felt that there was a need for a club where beginners could play without fear. A section of the club was set up in Mid-Sutton Community Centre in Bayside, which has since become a seperate very popular club in it's own right. When Una retired from the club, her Daughter Cynthia carried on running the club(s) - with the help of her Sister Gretta Brooks up until 2001. -  Incidentally Gretta is still an esteemed member of our club. -  When Cynthia retired the club (in the Sheeling Hotel) formed a committee to continue running the club, and the name was changed to Foxhall Bridge Club. The Old Sheeling Hotel was sold in 2002 and the club had to move premises, and after trying a number of venues we came to our present home in All Saints Church Hall Raheny where we continue to play every Tuesday night.
