ROSHEEN Mackle followed in the footsteps of her father and grandfather when she was inducted into the Road Bowling Hall of Fame at last weekend's annual awards in Blackwatertown.

The first female entrant, Mackle won seven Ulster senior titles and two All-Ireland senior crowns over a glittering career on the roads and remains absorbed in all that is positive about road bowling.

After receiving her award from John Gribben, vice-President of Ból Chumann na hÉireann (northern branch), she expressed her delight adding: “This being the third generation of the same family to be honoured in this way is really special and proves that road bowling is a sport that prospers through family tradition.”
