Bray Bowling News 26/09/22

The club championship finals took place last weekend and the weather God's looked kindly on all the finalists. There was a very good attendance over the course of the two days. On Saturday we had some thrilling matches with two of them going down to the wire. In the Ladies 2 Bowl Singles Marge O'Leary showed all her experience by defeating Therea Martin 21/20 in an absolute thriller. In the Mixed Trips the team of Frank Byrne/Terri McKeon/Marcus Donohue had a 15/14 win over Ger Minogue/Ann Downhams/Eamonn Kennedy. Peter Gough retained his 2 Bowl Singles title defeating Patrick Brosnan 21/14 and in the Men's 4 Bowl Pairs Niall Shelley and Ger Hollingsworth overcame Walter Doyle and Shane Martin.

Sunday saw 5 finals taking place and, in the morning session, John Dunne defeated his mentor Walter Doyle in the handicap singles. In the Ladies 2 Bowl Pairs Theresa Martin/Marge O'Leary defeated Patsy Campbell/Terri McKeon. This was Theresa's third win on the trot in this competition. The Men's 2 Bowl Pairs saw Eoghain Brady/Brendan Duffy overcome Roddy O'Leary/Ewen Cronin where everything hinged on the last bowls from Eoghain and Roddy. The afternoon saw the blue riband finals of both the Ladies and Gents Championships. Phyllis Brett and Breeda Keogh served up a thriller in the ladies final and Phyllis overturned a large deficit to claim yet another Ladies Championship. In the Men's final Niall Shelley claimed a first title when defeating Patrick Brosnan. Both Niall and Phyllis will represent Bray in the Champion of Champions competition next year. There is no pressure on Niall but Bray are the defending champions !!!.

A big thank you goes to the organisers for all their great work and for having a direct line to Met Eireann in Millibar Mansions. A period of reflection will now follow until the commencement of the Winter League on 15th October.
