Congratulations to Rosie Brown on being selected again for the Irish Ladies International team to play in Belmont BC in June and in the International Test Series in Wales in July
One of our members, Mike Brophy, is the Vice-President of the Irish Bowling Association this year and next year in 2018 he will be the President of the IBA.
The IBA is the governing body of the sport of men’s outdoors bowls in Ireland (32 counties) and it is a great honour for Mike and Dun Laoghaire Bowling Club that he will be President next year. During 2018 there will be two events held at the club, the IBA flag unfurling on 7 April and the IBA National Bowling Championship Finals on Friday 31 August and Saturday 1 September.
The National Bowling Championships Finals in 2018 is a major event for the club and the Dun Laoghaire area.
Dun Laoghaire Bowling Club hosted their annual Coffee Morning in aid of Blackrock Hospice on Tuesday 19th September. Had a great game of bowls before a lovely cuppa and yummy cakes and we also had a Raffle. The total money raised for the .Hospice this year came to €1,055. Many many thanks to all our members and friends.
Congratulations to John Byrne & Noeleen Kelly, both of Crumlin Bowling Club, on their respective wins in the 2017 Champion of Champions.
