Results, Hand Records and Personal Records (Inter A) First Session
The 6 teams (Patron’s Team, England, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Scotland and Wales) play 10 matches of 14 boards – playing 2 matches against each of the other 5 teams.
It is with great sadness that we report the sudden death of our dear friend Ciara Burns. Everyone loved Ciara. As well as being one of the top bridge players in Ireland, Ciara also possessed that rare gift of being down to earth and friendly as well. Her bubbly, cheerful disposition was infectious and we were all taken by the fact someone so nice could also be so good. Despite her very young age, Ciara was a multiple winner of most major national titles and also played at international level representing Northern Ireland in the Lady Milne and also in the Camrose Championships. She was also selected to represent Ireland to play in the European Championships on three occasions.
Ciara, as well as reaching the top of her game, was also very generous with her time, being willing to help up and coming players and also prepared to get involved in the administration of the game, culminating in her becoming President of the Irish Bridge Union. Ciara will by now have met up with the two people she missed so much – her father Hugh and her best friend Mary Finn.
We will all miss Ciara and her wonderful laugh. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to her mother Anne, brother Paul, and the rest of her family and to her broken hearted wide circle of friends. May she rest in peace.
