Michael McGloughlin RIP

Michael McGloughlin RIP

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of one of the stalwarts of Irish Bridge, Michael McGloughlin.  As a player his prowess was well known being one of our few Grand Masters but even more telling of his generous character was his willingness to actively encourage and support bridge at all levels – club, congress, national and inter-national level and not just in name but by actually attending these events in person in every corner of the country – accompanied by Heidi to whom we extend our heartfelt sympathies.  Michael and Heidi were always wonderful ambassadors for Irish Bridge on their many international trips abroad.  May he rest in peace.  Due to government guidelines, a private Funeral Mass will take place at St. Mary’s Church, Haddington Road, at 11am on Wednesday 23rd December.  Donations, if desired, to Heidi India Fund.
