It is with regret that, in view of the current Covid19 situation, Menstrie Bowling Club Committee has taken the difficult decision to Cancel the upcoming Kerry Pairs Competition.

It wasn’t an easy decision to make but Member’s and Visitor’s health and wellbeing had to take precedence and so it was felt that in the current climate there was no option but to cancel!

The Bar will be open 1pm until 6pm –

Please remember to adhere to the current Covid19 rules and don’t forget your mask 😷
