Competition Rules

Following last Saturday’s Council meeting the latest and hopefully the final draft of the Competition Rules can be accessed with the link below.

The draft rules will be on the agenda for approval for the 2024 season at the Annual General Meeting scheduled for Thursday 21st March in Crumlin B.C. at 7.30p.m.

Development League,

Following considerable feedback on the success of last years Development League, the ILB DEVCO decided to run another one ahead of the upcoming 2024 summer season.
The League, which is aimed at new and nearly new players, will be held across 3 greens, Herbert Park, Leinster and North Kildare.  Whilst the overarching aim is to get people out enjoying the sport, the structure helps to integrate players into semi-competitive league structures.  Based on last years feedback, participating Clubs really benefited from this.   
Section 1 is made up of Crumlin, Greystones, Herbert Park and North Kildare.  Section 2 features Blackrock, Clontarf, Leinster and Ierne.  The first round of fixtures takes place on 25 Feb with the play-offs on 24 March.                          
Best of luck to everyone and enjoy the experience.

Para Bowling

History was made when Ireland played England in the first Para Bowls Test. The Irish side consisting  of bowlers from North and South lost by 3 matches to 2.  For their inaugural international trial this was an excellent result.  The future is bright for Irish Para Bowls.

Above is a photo of the team and their officials and carers.  Included from the ILB are :-
