Gorey team bowls them over
GOREY Active Retirement Association was well represented at Active Retirement Ireland's third annual national bowls tournament last week, with one of the Gorey teams taking second place in one of the three-day event's competitions in Killarney, Co. Kerry.
A total of 64 teams of retired men and women competed for the Active Retirement Cup and the Active Retirement Plate in two separate competitions, one for big bowls and one for small. Competitors ranged in age from 50 to over 90 and played in mixed teams of four.
The ARI National Bowls Tournament ended with a gala ball, at which Gorey team members Damien Goodwin, Anne Slator, Kay Farrell and Pat Coady were presented with their prizes.
