Away weekend for Kinsale Bridge Club October 2015
The Bayview Hotel in Ballycotton got an end of season boost when it hosted Kinsale Bridge Club for an intensive weekend of Bridge. The wonderful organisation and hard work by Deirdre, Brian, Mary and George ensured that everything worked to perfection.
The management and staff of the hotel were welcoming and helpful at all times. The food was delicious and we went home carrying extra pounds.
We were delighted that members from other clubs participated and competed with us.
It has been rumoured that some members have booked for next year already.
