We send our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Maria Wallace. We need everyone to double-up on your much appreciated prayers...We are also glad to hear that our friend Michael Stevens is nearly back to full strength again - his nurses are anxious that he return to us asap. Best wishes also to Jim Sproule who will hopefully be back playing Multi and Tartans before too long. Best wishes to Joan Coleman for a speedy recovery too.
Our thanks to Fr. Thos Woods who said a lovely mass before Bridge on Monday night for all our many friends and family who may be ill at present and might need our prayers.
It is with great sadness that we report the deaths of two of our dear Bridge friends- Imelda Crummy and Brian Cotter. Both were keen supporters of our Sligo Clubs over the years and both were as gentle at the table as they were away from the table. May they rest in peace.
Congratulations to our Sligo winners on the National Stage.
Hilary McDonagh and Gilda Pender (HILDA) have just won the recent IBU Trials to take their place on the women's national team to play in the European Championships next June in Croatia. This pair also finished third in the National Teams Championdhip (Holmes Wilson) in Athlone at the weekend and were on the winning team in the National Women'sTeams Championship in Dublin. Congrats also to Mary Finn who was on the third place team. Gladys Sheridan and Assumpta Kelly won the Best Master Prize in the National Women's Pairs Championship. They were joined on the winner's podium by George Brennan and Tommy Banks who won the Best Master Prize in the Men's Pairs.
