Belfast in Northern Ireland received a visit from President Yves Aubry and EC Committee members Josef Harsanyi and Paul Porteous recently. They were warmly welcomed by members of the Irish Bridge Union, executives of the Visit Belfast team and Lord Mayor of Belfast, Brian Kingston.
The visit was instigated by IBU joint Hon Secretary Harold Curran, who felt that Belfast would be an ideal venue for the next NBO Officers Seminar, scheduled for early 2018. Various hotel venues were visited with this in mind. Also visited were the Titanic Museum, named after the ill-fated ocean liner and the wonderful Waterfront Centre which could be an ideal venue for a future Championship.
