President's Message

 

A Chairde

We truly are living in peculiar times. With the continuing global spread of COVID-19 infection, my hope is that all of our members stay safe and well and follow the guidelines provided on HSE.ie.

Before the virus stopped all bridge in the region, Saint Brigid's Parish Bridge Club in Cabinteely were the most genial of hosts for this season's Rossiter-Herman & Eileen O'Doherty Trophies. Many thanks to Joan, Bernadette and Declan for a smoothly run night. I am delighted that entries for these competitions have increased over the last few years and that next season we will have to secure a larger venue to host them.

National and Regional competitions have been suspended until further notice but check out cbai.ie for guidelines on running on-line games and tournaments.

Tá súil agam go bhfanfaidh sibh go léir slán agus sabháilte
