Dear fellow members of Dundalk Bridge Club,

At this stage in the Covid19 crisis it is good to know that we are safe and well. I am convinced that soap and hot water combined with social isolation or cocooning as appropriate is our best defense. I am certainly finding it difficult but protecting ourselves is protecting our brave and very vulnerable Health Care Workers and those many among us with compromised health.

Everyone is experiencing some level of anxiety and I find meditation and yoga really helpful, as are the many funny and uplifting videos circulating. Bridge is another resource and Seamus Costello has great quizzes on Balbriggan Bridgewebs. Bridge Base on Line is another great free resource so do use all the help available.

The committee has offered our club premises to the HSE for the duration of the crisis in the hope it might be useful.         I hope everyone is happy with that decision

Until we meet again with profound relief and hugs stay kind, and be serene  and safe.     Love to you all,  Ann.

A "Thank You" from Ann

Dear Bridge Family,
I received this beautiful and completely unexpected Bouquet of flowers yesterday. It was a lovely and thoughtful gift I wished everyone could have had their own.Thank you so much.
I feel as a club we have done ourselves proud in these calamitous days.
Please all stay safe and kind until we can meet again.
Love, Ann.

Bridge on Line DLK - Up and Running

Hearty congratulations are due to Anne Sloan and Tom McElarney ably assisted by Nuala Connolly for their initiative in setting up the What'sApp group dedicated to Dundalk Bridge Club members.

The plan has been enthusiastically embraced by Club members who are playing day and evening.

What a great contribution to our members welfare during this difficult time.

Well done all of you.

Tom would like to acknowledge the help and encouragement from Dolores and Margo. Now who can organize remote hairdressing ?                                                                         Ann McNee.
