Lady Milne International Championship – Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12th to 14th April – City North Hotel – Congratulations ENGLAND

The event started in 1934 and is now played over one weekend for Womens teams from England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Since 2009 the host fields a sixth team called by the name of the Federation (CBAI).  This team can also win the trophy for the country and did so for England in 2010.  Teams play a head-to-head match of 32 boards against each of the other five, each being victory-pointed.  In 2011 for the first time in 62 years the series ended in a tie, the trophy being shared between Scotland and England. The regulations for a tie were subsequently changed making one a lot less likely.

England has won outright on 48 occasions (one being its second team in 2010).  Scotland has won outright 14 times: in 1950, 1956, 1980, 1984, 1986, 1992, 1994, 2004, 2007, 2009, 2012, 2014, 2016 & 2018; Wales won in 1967, 1968, 1988 and 2015 Northern Ireland won in 1981 and 1985; the Republic of Ireland, joining the series in 1998, has yet to win.

May Bank Holiday Monday Night – Discuss with the Experts Night

Southern Hotel 7.30 p.m. to 10.30 p.m.  (Open to All)

As part of our ‘Improving May Month’, Thomas MacCormac and three of his Junior International Players have kindly agreed to come down and share their wisdom with us on the May Bank Holiday Monday Night.  The evening will begin as normal at 7.30 with a card game of instructional hands followed by a question and answer post-mortem session with Thomas and his star players.
Thomas is hoping to raise funds to send his promising team to the World Championships and ACBL Championships later in the year and this ‘Discuss with the Expert’ night is part of their fund raising.  The cost for the evening is 15 euro per person – and is open to all bridge players from any club or region.
If we get enough players interested, we will proceed with the event.  We don’t often get the chance to listen and learn from top players so this is a fantastic opportunity at a very reasonable price.  If you are interested please give your names to Fearghal 086-2652871 or Mairead asap.
