The best of luck to the four teams representing Ireland at the 56th European Championships, in Herning, Denmark. The Open competition starts on Monday 24 June, and the Women’s, Seniors’, and Mixed competitions on Friday 28 June. Our teams are:

  • Open: John Carroll, Mark Moran, Tom Hanlon, Conor Boland, Adam Mesbur, Nick FitzGibbon, NPC GrĂ¡inne Barton
  • Women: Joan Kenny, Jeannie Fitzgerald, Louise Mitchell, Lucy Phelan, Teresa Rigney, Siobhan Part, NPC Paul Porteous
  • Senior: Hastings Campbell, Sam Hall, Ian Lindsay, Ian Hamilton, Terry Walsh, BJ O’Brien, NPC Harold Curran
  • Mixed: Sandra Newell, Claudiu Dima, Michelle Moloney, Marcin Rudzinski, Anna Onishuk, Karel De Raeymaeker, NPC Diarmuid Reddan

You’ll be able to keep track of the results here, and we would expect all teams to feature on the Vugraph facility at some stage during the championships. Please give all our teams your full support for what will be a very demanding week of top-level bridge (eleven days for the Open team).
