European Bowls Union Championships 2017



IIreland win the Gold Medal in the overall team championships which were held in Jersey last week

This year there were 16 countries participating with Two countries competing for the first time France and Hungary

The Irish Team consisted  of Megan Wilson, Catherine Beattie (Capt) Mark Wilson and Andrew Kyle

They won Silver Medals in the Ladies Pairs, Menís Pairs, and Mixed Fours,  which was enough to win the overall title.

Ireland Team Manager, Neill Booth, commented that it was a terrific performance for the team, and it could have been even better only missing out on the Gold In the Ladies and Menís Pairs by Shot Difference

This year the President of the European Bowls Union is Brian Morton from Dublin, and he said it was only fitting that Ireland should win, as he is the first President from Ireland to hold the position
