Welcome to Marley Grange Bridge Club
The Irish Bridge Union

 

The Irish Bridge Union (IBU) is a confederation of the Contract Bridge Association of Ireland (CBAI) and the Northern Ireland Bridge Union (NIBU) and is the body responsible for the administration of bridge on an All-Ireland basis, where applicable - for example participation in European and World Championships.

The IBU also runs a number of All-Ireland competitions - the Burke Trophy (Inter-County Open Teams Championship), the O'Connor Trophy (Inter-County Intermediate A Teams Championship), the Moylan Cup (All-Ireland Pairs Championship), the Pat McDevitt Trophy (Senior Pairs), the Senior Teams Championship, the IBU Club Pairs, and the Egan Trophy (All-Ireland Teams Championship), as well as the annual Interprovincial Championships, which have sections at Open, Area Master, and Intermediate grades. All members of CBAI and NIBU are automatically members of the IBU.

There are also several IBU junior events, notably the Limerick Treaty Cup (Pairs), and the All-Ireland Schools Teams Championships.

Finally, there is a week of Simultaneous Pairs events in support of the IBU every November.

Internet Connection and Hardware

Internet Connection - Please check and ensure your internet connection is robust, reliable and working at the stated speed.  A poor internet connection impacts not only you but all the other players in the game as well.  This is due to the delay and disruption caused by slow connections and players going offline.

Your Hardware - Please ensure that when you are playing bridge online that all other activities and applications (APPS) on your device have been shutdown/closed.  Please also check that your hardware is reasonably current and can cope with a 21st Century online environment. 

Ask a family member or friend if you need advice.

SLOW PLAY IMPACTS ON ENJOYMENT OF THE GAME
SLOW PLAY IMPACTS ON ENJOYMENT OF THE GAME

Slow play means that some players are slow.  You can call the TD if you feel that your opposition are slow or are delaying completion of a board.  The TD will adjust an averaged score where the replay of the board shows a different outcome was likely.  You can call the TD to the table at any time during play or you can lodge an appeal after play.  There is a 20 minute appeals window after play.
