Irish Road Bowling

Irish Road Bowling continues at Canaan Valley. In the highest-elevation valley east of the Mississippi, this open road with sweeping curves is an ideal contrast to the boulders and rhododendron thickets at nearby Blackwater Falls. Enjoy a two-day two-event road bowling weekend at Blackwater and Canaan.

Event starts at 1:30 p.m. Learn more about road bowling at wvirishroadbowling.com or contact David Vance at 304-622-4121 Ext 2788.

Irish Road Bowling can be traced back to the 1600s. One story is that Dutch soldiers brought it when William of Orange came to Ireland in 1689. Another legend says that Irish patriots robbed English cannonballs and rolled them down a country lane by the light of a full moon. Faugh a Ballach!
