Welcome to the Mount Merrion Bridge Club. The Club is well established, having been founded in 1954. We are affiliated to the Eastern Region of the CBAI and a number of our members play regularly in competitions at regional and national level. Each year, the Club hosts the Eastern Region Memorial Trophy competiton which is held in memory of past members of the Region.
We meet at 7.30 p.m. on Tuesday evenings in Leopardstown Park Hospital; for directions, please see the map on this website. There is ample free parking - upon arrival, take a ticket to raise the entry barrier and then have it validated at the reception desk. The hospital is adjacent to the Luas Green Line Central Park station. We play in a bright, well heated and comfortable hall which is at ground floor level which means that there are no accessibility issues.
The Club is managed by an active committee. A number of special events are held during the year including a Club Pairs Competition, a President's Prize and a highly convivial Christmas Party. At the club, you will enjoy a good standard of bridge (mostly Intermediate A and Master players) and a friendly atmosphere. In order to ensure that our competitions run smoothly, we employ a tournament director and use Bridgemates for scoring. Results are available at the end of play and are published promptly on this web-site.
With the exception of the evenings on which major competitions are being played (see Calendar), visitors are welcome to play once in each month when accompanied by a club member. In addition, occasional visiting pairs are welcome with the approval of the Secretary. We are endeavouring as far as possible to comply with the terms of our CBAI public liability policy.
We are extremely happy to receive applications for membership.
The Annual General Meeting of the Club will take place at 6.30 p.m. on Tuesday June 5th. PLEASE NOTE THE START TIME.
This is an important event at which members can express their views concerning the running of the Club. Any member who wishes to raise a major issue at the AGM is asked to advise the Secretary or other committee member in advance in order that we can ensure that the matter is included on the AGM Agenda.
A further important function of the Club's AGM is to elect a new committee. Mount Merrion BC has been most fortunate that a small number of individuals have given tirelessly to the Club over the years. Quite obviously, it is unrealistic to expect the same members to contibute indefinitely. It is also the case that new committee members bring new ideas to the table which is important in any organisation. ON THIS OCCASION, WE REQUIRE NEW COMMITTEE MEMBERS AND A NEW PRESIDENT. All Club members are asked to seriously consider agreeing to join the committee for a period. By so doing, they will be ensuring the long-term future of the Club.
President: Molly Flynn
Secretary: Mairead Larkin
Treasurer: Jennifer Kelly
Competitions Secretary: Molly Flynn
Committee: Joan Banks; William Clingan; Mary Dillon; Noreen Norris;
