Lord Mayors Cup 2022 – Last 32 Wednesday Draw

Ladies Bowling League of Ireland Championships 2022

Hosted by Clontarf Bowling Club from Monday 8th to Thursday 11th August 2022.

Message of Thanks

Thank you to everyone in Clontarf Golf and Bowling Club who helped and supported the organising of the Ladies Bowling League of Ireland Championships at Clontarf Bowling Club last week. The event was a resounding success. There have been lots of compliments from the participants and spectators about the club, the wonderful grass rinks, the facilities offered, the organisational arrangements and the hospitality and friendliness shown to contestants and guests. I’ve been told that our Club’s effort has set a blueprint for future championships events.

This 4-day event was a big undertaking for the Bowling Club. It would not have been possible without the trojan work of the volunteer corps of the Bowling Club backed by Captain John and the Bowling Club Committee and supported by the President, Officers and General Manager of the Club and the Captains and both member bowlers and golfers.

There were 27 matches with 144 contestants over the 4 days.  Hundreds of supporters and guests came to Clontarf to enjoy the championship bowling.  There were 29 volunteer bowler members on the rota over the 4 days and others turned up on the day and helped out.  They set out the rinks, put out mats, jacks, scoreboards, raised the flags, greeted the guests, assisted the contestants, helped with the Marquee refreshments and undertook the numerous other tasks that made the event a memorable spectacle.

Thank you to Lady Captain Mary and the lady golfers who made their locker room available to the lady bowler competitors. It was greatly appreciated by them. Thank you to President Andy and the Officers and Captains of the Golf and Bowling Club who made their parking spaces available to the Umpires and the LBLI officials for the four days.    Thank you to Ann and Laurent and their staff who courteously and efficiently fed the contestants and spectators each day and provided a wonderful Presentation Dinner on Thursday.  Thank you to the Bar staff for keeping the thirsty watered and helping in other ways. The delicious food was a constant topic of conversation (after the weather) throughout the week.  Thank you to Darragh and his crew for ensuring the rinks were in top condition and to John Delaney and his team for sorting the Wi-Fi, the delivery of the Scoreboard, the parking, the cleaning and the facilities arrangements and to Flo who was on hand to sort out the last-minute issues that cropped up.  Michelle, Audrey and Muriel, thank you for your help with the admin and with the repairs to the President’s chain.

Neil, thank you for helping us to pull it all together, for checking in with us every day and for all you have done to ensure the Championship week would run smoothly.

Thank you too, to all Club members for the patience and the good humour shown to us when we were coming and going through the clubhouse and the pavilion and generally making our presence felt while making our preparations.   There were many others involved in the months leading up to the event, ensuring the gardens were planted and tended and looking their best and working quietly behind the scenes.  To each and every one of you we say Thank You.
