New Bridge Season 2022-23

Thank you to those who attended the Meeting last Monday in the GAA Bar.

There was a great turnout and we had a great exchange of ideas and viewppoints,

It would seem that there is a large number of people who wish to return to face-to-face bridge and some who are still nervous.

The number returning would indicate that the Bar in the GAA is too small for our needs.

We also have a number of people enquiring about joining and we are open to new members.

I have liaised with the Principal of Scoil an Spioraid Naoimh (Boys) and we have been afforded the use of the Halla on MOnday nights up until 11:00 p m.

The entry to the school will be through Allendale Avenue and this gate will be opened from 7:00 p,m, 

There will be adequate parking for about 30 - 40 cars by using both sides of the entrance. Please ensure that you are not blocking in anyone when you park.

At the conclusion of the Bridge you are asked to take your chairs back to the storeroom and the table to the storage area which will be shown to you,

For the first week I will open early so that we can register before play.. ( Gate will be open at 6:45 pm)

Cards have not been finalised yet so bring a notebook for bookings.

We will finish each night not later than 10:30 but hopefully by 10:15 if possible so please help the TDs on the night by playing reasonably quickly, Seven minutes per board should be the maximum. The TDs will have to average if people are slow.

I hope that this venue suits, I know that it is much more comfortable than the old Bar in the GAA.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as feel comfortable by returning on Monday.

Yours in Bridge.


PS:-  Pease bring this to the attention of any member who may not have Email
