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.
