Notice from the Irish Bridge Union and the Contract Bridge Association of Ireland (Wednesday 18th March)

The National Pairs Finals due to be played this weekend in Athlone has been postponed as have the National Teams Finals due to played in Athlone in April as well as the Cooper & Lambert & Novice Finals in April.  The Moylan Cup and the Seniors Congress have also been postponed.  IBU Mixed Team Trial has also been postponed.   Sadly the famous Clonmel Congress has been cancelled as has Galway Congress and Killarney Congress.  The Lady Milne and the Senior Camrose are postponed til later in the year.

If it is feasible, and if the possibility of infection from this virus is eliminated, the National Competitions will be rescheduled during the summer months.

CBAI will review the situation at Easter and will make any necessary decisions about further National events that are currently scheduled before the end of this season.

All the hotels who were due to host our events have been informed and all have responded very supportively.  In fact the Cavan Crystal Hotel has put together an attractive offer for CBAI members.
