Welcome to Dunboyne Bridge Club
Welcome To Dunboyne Bridge Club

Dunboyne Bridge Club plays in the Old School House, Main Street, Dunboyne on Monday evenings at 7.15 pm.

To faciliatate the set up of the Bridgemates we ask Members to be seated by 7.05 p.m.

With effect from 5 September after a long period of playing bridge online our club has returned to live bridge. 

The club will not be operating online from that date onwards.

Before returning to live bridge all our members should review the Club's Covid-19 Precautions notice below


Covid-19 Precautions

If you have any Covid-19 symptoms DO NOT COME TO BRIDGE

If anyone in your household has Covid-19 DO NOT COME TO BRIDGE

The room in which we play will be well ventilated by leaving all windows open. Please bear this in mind and dress appropriately

To reduce handling of the Bridgemates, only North should handle the Bridgemate at the table.

Each member will use the same bidding box throughout the evening. This means if you are East/West you must carry your bidding box with you from table to table throughout the evening.

Hand sanitisers will provided at each table. Members are encouraged to sanitise their hands at the end of each round.

Mask wearing is optional.

Table money is €5. To reduce handling of money please bring the exact amount and place it in the bag which will be left in the centre of the table.

If you are feeling unwell or suffering from a cold you should not attend bridge. We must all play our part in making the return to live bridge a safe and comfortable experience for all.
