About this Event

Irish Road Bowling is a sport that has been played in West Virginia since 1995, but the roots go farther back to the American Civil War when soldiers from Ireland played. The Irish have been playing the sport since the 1600s.
About Irish Road Bowling:
It consists of a ball made out of iron and steel that is heavy enough to
pick up speed, yet small enough for any person to handle. Besides the
basic rules and terms, all you do is hurl this 28 oz. sized "bowl" with an
underhand motion over a 1 to 2 mile country road and see how far it
goes! Team events are played with teams of 3 or 4 bowlers. Scored like
golf, the fewest number of shots from the start to the finish line wins.
