Our former Competitions Secretary, Joan Kilduff, sadly passed away on Thursday July 27th. Joan was a long serving member of the Eastern Region general committee and took on the post of Honorary Competitions Secretary in the mid-nineties. She was an extremely efficient and diligent secretary and meticulously kept track of all competition winners and trophies for more than ten years. She was an enthusiastic member in several Eastern Region clubs including Dun Laoghaire, The Victor and Monkstown Bridge Clubs for many years. She will be missed by her many friends. Funeral arrangements are on the link below. Rest in peace.
