Welcome to the official site of the Bowling League of Ireland and the Ladies Bowling League of Ireland.

Irish Lawn Bowls is the combination of the Bowling League of Ireland (BLI) and the Ladies Bowling League of Ireland (LBLI), the governing body for Lawn Bowls in the Republic of Ireland. The game is fast growing with clubs now in the following counties: Cork, Dublin, Kildare, Limerick, Meath, Offaly, Sligo, Waterford, and Wicklow. There are however many other counties where clubs are in the process of being formed.

Lawn bowls is a sport for all ages with competitors aged from under 10 to almost 100 currently playing in BLI/LBLI affiliated clubs.

Welcome to the BLI / LBLI Blog

Here will be posted various notice that we want to bring to your attention

Millane Cup

Hi Charlie/Fran

I have had a number a queries about the Millane Cup entries.

The BLI competition entry forms will be sent to all clubs in the coming weeks. These will contain a column for the Millane Cup. Both names must be entered and sent to myself. The BLI treasurer will bill the club for all BLI entries including both players entering the Millane Cup.

The closing date will be April 12th at 5pm and the cost is €7 per person (€14 per pair) similar to the cost of all the other BLI competitions.

The draw will take place a few days after the closing date. This will be sent to all clubs and also posted on the website.

Can you forward this information onto your respective secretaries/delegates.

Kind Regards
Stephen Millane
Hon. Competition Secretary

New website launched

The new BLI / LBLI website has now been launched. This has been developed using the Divi theme under WordPress.  The purpose of the redevelopment is two fold.

  1. To bring the website up to date using current web development tools.
  2. To use the facilities of Divi which make the website more readable irrespective of whether you are reading on your Laptop, Tablet, or Smart Phone.

There is still one outstanding job required and that is to complete the various Championship Draws.

These will be completed in sufficient tome for the Championship draws at the start of the season.
