This week all roads lead to Meigh for bowlers as the Annual Pairs Tournament gets underway.  This year there are four nights in succession and easy to remember; Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd, Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th from 7.00 pm with the finals on Tuesday 28th February.   At the time of writing entries were coming in really well with Wednesday night the most popular with a full quota. So if your secretary hasn’t told you about this tournament yet, hurry and get on the phone now 07740 982695 and book your spot while places still exist on the other nights available,  you’re sure of a welcome on the mat. Meigh hosted a marvellous feast of top quality bowling last Thursday night with the finals of the Oriel / South Armagh Pairs for Charity. This was a unique event which marked the coming together of two parts of Oriel Zone Bowling that had been experiencing difficulties in their relationship in recent years. While  more work needs to be done here, the success of this event surprised many, with some very interesting pairs being drawn out to perform together on the first night at Silverbridge at the end of last month. It was quite fitting and appropriate that the winning pair should be none other than the South Armagh Bowls Chairman Anthony Reel, Cullyhanna, who played so consistently well all evening, ably supported by his very experienced lead, Brendan McMahon, Carrickmacross. Runners up were Kevin Conroy Redeemer and Josie Trainor Silverbridge. Finally, all Meigh Bowling Club members wish to convey their sincere sympathy to Stevie and Nora Mackin and family on the recent death of their brother and brother in law, Patrick John.
