Meath club Athboy Macra were crowned All Ireland Champions at the event and Glanmire Macra from Cork were runners up.
The national final of the competition was held in the ALSAA complex in Dublin on Sunday, October 2nd.
Macra na Feirme National President, Seán Finan, said, “Bowling is a great way to introduce physical activity in a fun and social way. The NDC Bowling competition is a popular competition in Macra and I wish to congratulate Athboy Macra on their win and would like to thank the National Diary Council for their continued support of this great competition.”
Being active is crucial for health and wellbeing and Macra, along with the National Dairy Council, are keen to emphasise the benefits of both exercise and healthy eating. “Drinking a glass of skimmed milk after taking part in sports is a great way to rehydrate as a number of research studies indicated”.
