British Isles Championship success

Friday 26th June 2015

The Ireland representatives at todays British Isles Championships had a very successful tournament.

The Fours (Michael Higgins, Andy Hughes, DJ Wilson and Myles Greenfield agonisingly lost the final in the last end by one shot.

Michael Higgins and Andy Hughes then joined with Tony Bell to successfully win the Triples title, which went right to the last bowl in the 18th end.

T0 top off a successful day the Senior Fours (Joe McLainey, Raymond Barr, Roy Battersby and Robin Horner) won the second title of the day leading their game from start to finish.

Overall Ireland picked up the Nat West trophy as the most successful  country overall for the first time since 2003.

Tomorrow will see the start of the British Isles internationals. Lets hope we can bring home more silverware come Sunday afternoon.
