The curtain came down on what one can only describe as a wonderful playing season for the club on Monday 15 th May. In the aftermath of Covid, it was wonderful to see 10 plus tables every night of members doing what they really enjoy, playing the game. The night started with the A.G.M. with over 40 in attendance. President Paul Kerins welcomed everyone andthanked all for their support during the year. He also thanked the County Arms Hotel for all their help during the bridge season. The Secretary Emer Hanniffy gave a detailed report, and also thanked everyone for their support and co-operation throughout the year. The year was an exceptional one with the club climbing to in excess of 50 members. Paul announced the incoming, President Ita Cavanagh who had the best wishes of all for the coming year. The meeting went on to elect all the outgoing committee, with Majella Gibbons taking on the Assistant Secretary position. The meeting then concluded. 

All adjourned upstairs for the final night dinner. The menu gave everyone a great choice, and the food served up was exceptional. All present had the highest of praise for the quality and service provided. All one can say to the staff is take a well earned bow and we express our sincere thanks each of them. Again, our sincere thanks to all in the County Arms Hotel. The night ended with the presentation of prizes for four competitions played during the season.
