Inclusion Day – Bray Bowling Club

On a bright November day Sunday the 26th., an inclusion day for people of all abilities was held in Bray Bowling Club. A wonderful enjoyable day with fabulous coaching from Ian McClure & Chris Mulholland from the North and Peter Knight & Mags McNevin from Dublin. The helpers includied Eamonn Carruth,  and Nicholas and Paul Smyth.
By the end of the session we saw some very encouraging heads and all participants felt they had a good understanding of the game. Another day is planned for Sunday 10th December and everyone was invited to attend. Any club looking for more information please get in touch with Mags McNevin at
