Patsy McTeggart RIP

It is with a heavy heart that we report the passing of Patsy McTeggart – one of the most cheerful and most pleasant players ever to grace a Bridge table.  Patsy was one of our founding members and as well as taking on the role of secretary she took on the even more important role of ‘social secretary’ and indeed there was no ‘party’ like a ‘Patsy Party’.  Her renditions of such party pieces as ‘Rindercella’ have left lasting memories on those of us who were fortunate enough to hear her in full flight.  When God meets Patsy he will wonder why it took him so long to call her – the ‘craic’ will be that good!  May she rest in peace.


Sue McCrory RIP

We are sorry to report the death of one of our great Bridge supporters Sue McCrory (Ballisodare).  Sue was one of those rare people – who as nice and beautiful at the table as she was away from the table.  We extend our deepest sympathies to her sisters Nan Dykes and Terry Martyn and her extended family.  May she rest in peace.

You are asked to keep Moira Moylan in your thoughts as Moira needs our prayers at this time too.  We send our best wishes to Joan Coleman.
