Bowls: Conroy continues his champion form in Aberdeen
RECENT IIBA Champion of Champions winner Kevin Conroy continued on his winning ways in Aberdeen last weekend.
The Oriel man remained undefeated when he skipped his rink to success in their three games in the international series as did Leigh Harrison and Colm McHugh. This was the 25th Irish success in the competition since it began in 1986.
Conroy continued his good run when he partnered his father Sean to victory in the British Isles Championship pairs.
Donegal's Eddie Curran repeated his 2013 triumph in the triples while Paddy Hanlon's Oriel rink completed at hat-trick for Ireland when they won the rinks. There was disappointment for Ballylennon's former his singles champion John Quinn who failed to reach the latter stages of the singles.
The Irish also had cause for celebration in the A international series and championships. North Belfast's Terry Crawford repeated last season's victory in the singles and Aidan Corrigan and DJ Wilson took the spoils in the triples and rinks respectively.
David Walker had the opportunity to complete a clean sweep only losing out on a shot count-back.
Meanwhile, County Antrim crashed to their second defeat in the AIIB Club Champion at Shaw's Bridge. The Baker Stadium side went down by 47 shots to Ballymoney earlier in the week and only finished ahead on one rink when they lost 72-50 to Belfast.
John Caldwell will face Nigel Robinson in the semis of the national pairs while Simon Martin's opponent will be Ali Coleman.
