Welcome to Confey Castle Bridge Club
Winners of Competitions 2021-22

Congratulations to:

Sheila Brien & Phil Fitzpatrick winners of the 2021 Autumn Pairs Competition.

Fees for 21/22 are €10 for each member, regardless of whether you are playing online or not. There are 3 ways to make payment:

1. Electronic transfer to the Club’s Credit Union account 

IBAN and BIC Numbers are in email sent to all.

2. In person at Leixlip Credit Union.

3. Over the phone using a debit card.

We would like every member to pay their membership fees before Friday, 22nd October and it is of utmost importance to put your name as a reference so that payments and names can be reconciled.


Update from Committee September 2021

From recent press statements and radio programmers it looks like we may be returning to face to face bridge sooner than expected. However, for now we will tread carefully, follow guidelines from CBAI and take our lead from other clubs especially those clubs in the general area. 

It is safe to say that online bridge will continue at least until the end of October. At that time we will review the situation and let you know what our plans are.

Message from our President

Welcome back to a new Bridge year, online again I’m afraid but hopefully not for too much longer, we await guidance from CBAI headquarters on same and we will keep you updated.

A few reminders before we get started:

Log in early, at least 10 minutes before start time.

Ensure you keep enough dollars in your account.

Use Whatsapp group to look for a partner, please do not choose to play with a robot, as you will not be awarded any points if you happen to win.

Please make every effort not to pass out a hand, especially if you are in the 3rd or 4th seat. Use the rule of twenty and/or open on 11 points if you must.


We have decided to leave fees at €10 for each member (in order to cover CBAI fee), regardless of whether you play or not, this may be adjusted when we return to table bridge.

To be eligible to win a prize in the Presidents Cup, a partnership must play both nights and have at least 50% attendance.

Thank you for continuing to use WhatsApp for Bridge matters only.
