Passing of Maureen Meade
We are very sad to announce the passing this afternoon (Monday 2
nd Jan) of a valued Bridge Player and Teacher, Maureen Meade. Click here for funeral arrangements. She played a major part in the development of Bridge in the Dublin North region in her teaching and in her work with other teachers. She was intent to encourage young people into the game and that was foremost in her mind when she set up the Donabate Club in a fast growing residence for young adults. This club is part of her legacy.

Maureen represented CBAI on Lady Milne team with Nuala Lynch in April 2005. That year the CBAI was represented by Teresa Rigney (Regent) & Heidi Lilis(Regent), Maureen Meade (Malahide), Nuala Lynch(Portmarnock), Mary Finn(Cork) & Ena Cleary (Limerick). The Tournament was played in Manchester on the weekend 15th-17th April. NPC was B.J. O' Brien

She has been a member of the National Teachers Committee since 2008 and in her work there she taught and was part of the team that qualified Bridge teachers. Maureen played a major roll in the annual Bridge Teacher Weekend Seminar. She taught bridge for many years in the Malahide Community School and Malahide Regional Bridge Club. In recent years she formed a Bridge school and club in Donabate, her final home place.

Maureen has been a member of the Malahide Regional Bridge Club, the now defunct Portmarnock Bridge Club and the Regent Bridge Club.  She served as Captain of the Portmarnock Bridge Club and as a Council member of the Malahide Regional Bridge Club, serving as Tournament Officer. She will be sadly missed

May Maureen Rest in Peace.
