Extraordinary General Meeting

Members were deeply saddened to hear of the death of Maura Moran.  A lovely, gentle woman, Maura was a member of the club for many years and she will be sadly missed by everyone that knew her, 

Following long and frank discussion, a compromise was reached at the club's EGM last night.  It is intended to try the new format for a period of three months, after which the situation will be reviewed.  While this might not be agreeable to everyone, it is hoped that all members will give it a chance.  A new interim committee has been appointed so let's now all pull together to make this work and return St Laurence's to being the pleasant and friendly club that it always was.  Thanks to Rory Egan, our independent Chairman for the evening and thanks to all the (over 100) members who came along and gave up their bridge night to try to find a solution to the problem.

The club will host a Massey Bros League match next Thursday and therefore, the Turkey Competition is postponed for at least one week.  You will be notified of the new date next week.

Lastly, we ended the night by marking a very happy event.  Dick O'Flynn, long standing member and former TD, celebrated his 90th birthday this week.  Happy birthday Dick, we hope you'll be playing bridge in St Laurence's for many more years!

Sad news

You will all be sorry to hear of the death, last Thursday, of Ella Kennedy. Ella has been unwell for some time but  despite her illness she was always good humoured and she and Gerry played in the club whenever she was well enough. Ella was a pleasure to know and was a valued member of our  club. She will be sadly missed and on behalf of all members we extend deepest sympathy to Gerry and the Kennedy family. May she rest in peace. Ella's funeral mass will be at 10am on Monday 3rd April in Cabinteely.  Further details on www.rip.ie.

St Laurence's Bridge Club

St Laurence's Bridge Club was founded in January 1989.  

Starting out with 7 or 8 tables, we now have over 200 members and are one of the biggest clubs in the region.  This is a great credit to our founders, Marie Andrews, Kitty Ryan (sadly, Kitty died during the past year) and Freda Griffin, to the many members who have served on the committee and to all the members who have supported the club over the last 28 years

We play every Thursday night in St Laurence's Parish Centre, Kilmacud.
