Roundwood & District News 2nd of June 2021

Lough Dan


Thomas Mac Cormac and I are hosting our first Grand Master Bridge Congress next weekend, the 4th, 5th and 6th of June 2021. As you know, creating new online Bridge opportunities for Novice, Intermediate and Master Bridge enthusiasts is very difficult while Bridge clubs are closed. That is why we are asking for your help. Entries can be taken on our new website at: All events are only one session and we think that by hosting it on RealBridge, it will be a much more social event and a lot of fun. Rory Eagan


We will be re-opening the centre on Monday the 14th of June from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Hospital transport is being provided as per usual. Counselling for cancer sufferers and their family is available. Reflexology, massage and other therapies are available also. If you would like any further information regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact us on 086 1534011 or call to the office for a chat.
