Members using the underground car park should be aware that we can use only the designated hotel spaces. Cars parked in other spaces are liable to be clamped. The hotel management have assured us that we can park in the surface Car Park up beside Woodies without fear of being clamped.
Over 40 members recently enjoyed a break at the Tablot Hotel in Wexford where we ate, drank and made merry with the help of our "travelling band" members Hank and Pat and our talented singers. Of course we managed to squeeze in a game or two of bridge while we were there!
Tallaght Bridge Club was founded in 2000 with the kind assistance and help of Seamus Dowling,( Secretary of the Dublin South Region), Anne Howard and Paul Hanratty. The first meeting took place on 22 August, 2000. Classes for beginners started the following Tuesday, 29 August 2000. The Club has gone from strength to strength with approximately 90 members.
