    [post_content] => bridgeThe National Bridge Section was started in early 1970’s, about 1972/73 by the forward thinking Franz Rothschild. He was aware that the club facilities were not been utilised in the winter months and being a bridge player himself he decided to form a bridge section within the National Yacht Club and invited several members to participate in lessons. Franz started with approximately 6 members and taught them himself. Over the next few years other bridge players, members of the club, joined the bridge section which had established itself as a regular Thursday evening event. As soon as the sailing season ended the bridge took over Thursday evenings for the winter season, which remains the case yo this day, some 37 years later.

The bridge section has gone from strength to strength since those early days and I am delighted to say that two of the original six beginners are still playing each Thursday evening, Dorothy Rothschild (Franz’s widow) and Barbara Kirwan. They were both very young when they started. Esma and Michael Rothschild are regular players during the bridge season, the tradition carries on.

The bridge b commences on the first Thursday in October and runs to the end of April. We have several social nights during the season and 4 in-house competitions. We also compete in an inter club event between 3 of the waterfront clubs, the Royal Irish YC, the Royal St George YC and the NYC, it’s a great social night and the competition is rather fierce between the clubs.

New members are always welcome, why not try it some Thursday evening!!

If you require further information on the bridge, please contact me at idakiernan@gmail.com telephone details with the club secretary.

Hope to see you some Thursday evening.
