The Bowling Greens of Ireland: Part 1 Bessbrook

As some of you know I'm back playing bowls in Ireland so I'm going to start an occassional sedries of the venues that I have been playing at.

First up is Bessbrook one of the longest treks for us within the Northern Irish Bowling Assoccation being all the way down near Newry. However as you can see from the pictures the green is set out in the green surrounded by the old mill cottages on three sides. There are also views of Slieve Gullion and Carnlough Mountain from the green. However, the day we were there as you can see rain not only threatened but came down so hard that for 5 minutes in the middle of the match we all sheltered in the club house.
