Vale Seamus Browne
Seamus Browne, one of our regular players until last year, and one of the greats of bridge in Australia and NZ, died over Easter, in Christchurch. It seems he was admitted to hospital with a brain haemorrhage and passed away within a few hours as nothing could be done for him. Seamus was one of many top players from Christchurch who moved to Sydney.
Seamus was a popular figure and a gentleman at the bridge table.
Seamus ran the Double Bay Bridge Centre, and directed and taught at Trumps. He suffered brain injuries in a road accident about 6 years ago and resided mainly in NZ in recent years.
Vale Seamus we miss you.
Seamus represented Australia in international competition in 1980 in the World Bridge Games, formerly Olympiad, he played in the Open team in the APBF, formerly Far East Championships in 1981, 1983, 1990, 1994 and 1999. Seamus also represented Australia in the Bermuda Bowl twice, 1997 and 1999.
