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. 

If you are new to the sport of bowls and want to find out how to play the game have a look at the following link which will help you find out how to play.

UGA Irish Project

UGA Irish Project is a Carlow based charity, The UGA Irish Project has been supporting Bbaale Landing site, a remote village on the shores of Lake Victoria In Southern Uganda, since 2013.

The community now has the benefit of clean drinking water, an eco sanitation block, twice monthly visits from a doctor, a fishing boat and a piece of land to grow vegetables. We are hoping to buy a second fishing boat for the community and also help them start a pineapple farm.

The charity has also built a ‘temporary’ primary school which has 5 classrooms, a Kitchen, a lunchroom, 3 toilets, and a fenced playground. It employs 5 leachers and has over 80 pupils.

Your donations are greatly appreciated. Every cent goes to Uganda – we have no offices, no staff, no salaries.

Every year a group of volunteers travel to Uganda to help support the various ongoing projects. They pay for their own flights and accommodation and fundraise for the charity.
