Paddy Murphy RIP

It is with much sadness that we report the recent passing of Patrick J (Paddy) Murphy, long-time member and former President (1981-1982) of the Tribes Bridge Club in Galway. Paddy was a core element of the Galway Bridge community for a very long time. He loved the game and was an active member of several city clubs down through the years, playing with a variety of partners. He joined the Tribes Bridge Club in its infancy and remained a stalwart supporter until his passing. He was one of the game’s true gentlemen and he was especially welcoming of new and visiting players to the Galway bridge scene.  He was elected President for the 1981-1982 season. Paddy was a very competent player and won four club championships, three since the turn of the century. He won his first title, The Geraldine O’Flynn T/4, in 1987-1988 with partner Clare Burke and team-mates Marie Silke & Mary Bane-Curran. He picked up his second title in 2003-2004 when he won the Dr. Sean Mulhern Trophy with Miriam Moloney. He repeated his earlier success in the Geraldine O’Flynn T/4 by winning it again in 2008-2009 with regular partner Miriam Moloney and team-mates Maurice Hession and Rory Timlin. The same quartet subsequently won the Club T/4 Championship in the 2011-2012 season.

Undoubtedly one of his most famous successes took place at the 1980 Ballina Congress when Paddy captained his three female team-mates to victory in the Congress Team of Four Championship. The October issue of the Irish Bridge Journal featured a lovely photo of the winners on the front cover.

With thanks to Paul Scannell for this Appreciation.

BBO News – Entry Fee 3 BB$

The good news is that from Wednesday, 1st July, there will be plenty of room for all who want to join in any of our games so there will be no need to rush home early to register – because BBO will be lifting their limit on the size of our events – but the bad news is that in order to get this limit lifted, there will be an entry fee of 3 BB$ per person for these events – starting Wednesday 1st July.  And because we are paying for our games BBO will also allow us start a little earlier – so we will be starting our games at 8.30 pm as and from tonight.  It will also mean that you will be able to win some nice ‘shiny’ BBO masterpoints.  Registration opens from 6.30 p.m.
