Volunteer Back-up TD Panel

Members will be glad to know that our panel of back up TD's is engaging in continuous training with Michael Rowan.

The plan is to follow up on the initial sessions which have now been completed with each panel member working with Michael to set up the club bridge on several occasions in a 'live' environment. When the team have all completed this, we will make sure the skills acquired are kept fresh through ongoing practice.

The panel currently includes Finola McDonald, Ronan Nolan, Christine Heath, Robert Wolfe, John Biggar, Sheila O'Kiersey, Donal O'Mearain, Niall Pelly, John Corcoran and Aidan Clarke. If any other members would like to join the panel, please let us know.
