 Ladies Bowling

 On a sunny Saturday morning with the hum of the lawnmower cutting the green in preparation for the afternoon’s match & the birds singing in the background, is a very special place. It is one of those magic moments when all is right with the world. Our founders chose well.

We are always open to new members & would love you to come along, rollup & try our bowling green.  Please contact the Lady Captain Deirdre McCann if you would like to visit the Club, try a roll-up on the Green or obtain any further information (Email: deirdremccann303@hotmail.com).

We welcome bowlers of all ages. If you are a complete beginner & need a word of encouragement or an experienced player looking for competition you will get it in Blackrock. Come along – we have something for everyone.
