Welcome to RDS
Latest News

The next Supper Night will be Wednesday 28th February 2018.

You should have the list  of Members' Contact  details as well as the 2017-2018 diary.  If not please ask Moya or Pat.  

Please put your name down on the Stand-By List.  This means we are all guaranteed a game.  

As part of the experiment to have a Section for people who wish to play at a faster pace we will try this variation for the next few weeks.
It will not apply to 2 week competitions or the CBAI Sims night.
The section will be limited to exactly 5 tables - no half table will be allowed.
The movement has to be a Howell to give a fair result.
8 rounds of 3 boards so you meet 8 of your 9 opponents.
There are SEATED POSITIONS at TABLE 1 N/S and 2 N/S.
If there are less than 7 tables for the rest of the members, the experiment will be suspended for that week and all players will play in one section.

 

For any further information on the above please contact Moya Murphy or Pat Cowley.  Details of the Committee can be found under 'Information' button.

Charity Night 

Our Charity Night in Aid of The Royal Hospital Donnybrook, which was held on Wednesday 17 April 2017 in the Concert Hall of the RDS, was an outstanding success.  We had 63 tables (252 playing guests) - a record attendance - and raised 8,275 euro for the Royal Hospital Donnybrook.  A huge thank you to all our members for their support,  and to the committee and all our volunteers for their stirling work and advance preparations which ensured the success of the night
