Dear Fellow Bowlers,
It is an honour and privilege to be President of the Irish Bowling Association for the 2015 season.
My thanks to the Northern Ireland Provincial Bowling Association for nominating me, the member clubs of the IBA for accepting that nomination at the AGM and my club Coleraine for all their help and support.
Congratulation to all those who have qualified for the BIBC championships this year. I look forward to supporting them and those selected for the Senior and Junior Internationals at Eddlewood and Oxford. I would also wish every success to those who are selected to represent the IBA in other competitions, in particular the qualifying stages for the 2016 World Championships.
In 2015 the Senior Inter Association will be held in Coleraine/Portstewart, the Junior Inter Association in Belfast with the IBA Championships held in Coleraine. Come along and support your Association at these important events.
May I extend to you all, my best wishes for good health to enjoy a successful season.
I shall endeavour to carry out my duties to the best of my ability and look forward to meeting as many of you as possible in 2015.
Yours in Bowls
