Bridge on BBO has become very popular - and in preparation for the upcoming European women's championships in Norway, there is a Festival of women's Bridge starting on BBO tomorrow and continuing to next Sunday.
The prize should attract every lady Bridge player in Ireland - since it means free entry to the European championships with a partner of her choice.
The details are available on the EBL website.
The third Carlow International congress kicks off at the excellent Seven Oaks Hotel on May 1 - and once again we have that important Civic reception by Carlow Co Council on the opening evening at 7pm.
I believe this official recognition is important, as it realises it is for the of the good of the town. Pity our Government won't follow suit.
Mixed pairs at 7.30pm; Congress pairs at 1.30pm on May 2; and teams at noon on the final day.
Entries to Kathryn Murphy at (086) 850-7102 or Mary Yates at (086) 864-8649.
