All Weather Bowling League Fixtures

The AWBA fixture list for the 2022 / 23 season is now on the website – see

There are 4 Southern Divisions and every effort has been made to avoid the situation where 3 matches are scheduled for the same day on the same green.  This is the reason why some clubs in sections 3 and 4 have some free Saturdays.  Clubs are requested to study their own fixtures and ensure that there are no more than 2 matches scheduled for their green on any particular day.   If there are any problems please email Lorcan Finn

IBA & IWBA National Championships

The IBA & IWBA National Championships were played this weekend in Cookstown and Pickie Bowling clubs.

The premier title “The Open Singles” was won by Noeleen Kelly of Crumlin Bowling Club,  Noeleen has many bowling victories but this was her first time winning the National Singles, well done to her.

The BLI were successful in winning the Youth Singles and our congratulations go to Adel Bangoli of Kenilworth Bowling club in his first appearance at the National Championships.

For the LBLI the team of Cora Hamill, Marian Lynch, Georgina Morrissey, & Pauline Murray of CYM were successful in the Fours.  I believe they scored an 8 on their way to victory, well done and congratulations

Well done to them all and best wishes for next year when they will represent Ireland in the British Isles Championships.
