DESMOND DEERY R.I.P.
Desmond Deery, who has died in Marbella aged 75, was one of Ireland’s all-time leading bridge-players. Born in Monaghan, he moved to Belfast as a University student.
Desmond’s first international for Ireland was at the age of 24 at the 1962 Europeans in Beirut. His principal partner later, through the 70’s, was Eoin MacNeill.
In the Home Internationals for the Camrose Trophy, Northern Ireland competes separately from the Republic. Desmond had forty matches for Northern Ireland, beginning in 1960 through to 1983.
Desmond studied law at Queen’s University and worked as a solicitor in Belfast. In 1984 he retired to Marbella where he ran the Marbella International Bridge Club. Irish bridge players were regular visitors to the club, welcomed with open arms. Desmond played in the club weekly tournament, and won, the day before he died.
Desmond earned eligibility by residence for Spain and played in the 1987 European Championship for Spain partnering a former British international also resident in Spain, Joel Tarlo.
May he rest in peace.
