Ranging in age from five up to 28 years, the competitors can bowl competitively or for recreational purposes.

Three of them lined out in the Triple Crown back in August, with some returning home with medals. A total of eight members are in the squad in training for the 2017 event next summer.

Currently the Arrows boast four National Champions in Under 12 and 16 boys and girls divisions.

“This club gives our members the oppor-tunity for everyone to go out and represent their country and they will do it,” insisted Arrows club adminis-trator Mary Larkin.

The club is currently on the lookout for sponsorship, particularly for new club shirts, and anyone interested in giving some financial support can contact Mary at 085 1003566.

“We need to raise about €600-€700 to fit the kids out in order to comply with competition rules,” explained Alan Grant of Tallaght Arrows.

The club is also hoping to send a number of their members to Cork to bowl there, and again are looking for some sponsorship.

The club meets in Tallaght Leisureplex every Saturday from 10am to approximately 12.15pm during which time members receive free coaching and play two games.
