Skittles tourney in full swing

ACTION is continuing this week in the long-running Gorey summer tradition of the Skittles Tournament at Browne's Bar and Lounge.

This year sees 50 men's teams and 14 women's teams competing, with several younger players making up the numbers alongside the 'old hands'.

Margaret Boland, one of the organisers, is delighted that there is still such interest in the competition, which has been running every year for the past 45 years.

The games are played on the footpath outside Browne's Bar at the Main Street traffic lights, and spectators are very welcome.

The finals will be held in late August.
