Dublin Seniors - the Last Post

The Seniors gave it their all but were beaten by the Irish in the last match of the event.  There were slams there for the bidding and the beating, but it turned out that even if we had got the maximum 25 VPs, it still wouldn’t have been quite enough to make the top six. 

Memories of Dublin 2012?  The Women’s Gold medal, the army of friendly and helpful yellow-shirted Irish volunteers, the Open team qualifying for Bali (contrary to the predictions of some), the persistent light drizzle, the Scots winning their first ever European or World medal, Monaco’s transformation from mere principality to European super-power, and finding a plaque  to the Reverend Benjamin McDowell (my great-great-great-great-grandfather) in the Abbey Church in Dublin.
