|I B A PRESIDENT DAVID MC CLOY.|
I consider it a great honour and privilege to be President of the Irish Bowling Association for 2019. There are many things to consider before accepting such a position but when the Management Committee indicated that I would have their full support, should I wish to accept the nomination, it made the final decision much easier. I know from my year as President of the Northern Ireland Private Greens Bowling League in 2015 that it would be impossible to fulfil the duties of President without the support of the Club.
I look on my year as President as an opportunity to showcase Ards Bowling Club. The IBA flag unfurling will take place on Saturday, 13thApril and the National Championships will be held later on in the year. The latter in particular is an excellent opportunity to show the capabilities of Ards in hosting such a prestigious event. I would encourage all members to come along and see the best bowlers in Ireland compete for the various National titles.
I will certainly represent the IBA to the best of my ability but at the same time not forget that I am also a representative of Ards Bowling Club.Unfurling of IBA Flag
