OUTDOOR BOWLS

Our first competition of the season went off very well over the past week with 16 teams competing in the Pairs tournament. It was played over 2 weeks on a knockout basis. The winners were Malachy Traynor as lead and Shane Magennis from Clontibret club who was skip. They both played exceptionally well in defeating the Derryvalley Pairing of Raymond and Kenny Steenson. The presentation took place afterwards and Malachy said he was so pleased to be in the enclosure. He also thanked the organisers for their efforts.
