​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The first meeting of the outdoor bowling Green was in 1994

.South Dublin County Council asked the indoor bowling club were they  interested in having a new outdoor green.


The then chairman of the bowling club Philip Greevy with a few members met the Council officials.

A number of meetings were held over the following  years with a Mr George Byrne then Chairman of the bowling  club and SDCC requesting  what progress was being made regarding the new Green. Eventually It got the go ahead and finance around 2007 and work started on site  

As work was progressing on the new green both the indoor bowls committe or Greenhills Community Council informed SDCC  they were unable to take on the running of the Green.

So in August 2009 a Steering committee was formed from a number of bowlers from  other clubs and on 7th September 2009 the first Committee meeting  was held and set about preparing the way forward.  Several more meetings were held in such places as Community Hall,Football Club, Crumlin Bowling club and SDCC Offices to overcome problems of responsabilities and insurance etc. We owe a great deal of thanks to that Committee and SDCC officials who done a lot of  very hard work to get us up and bowling namely

Dr Christy Boylan 

Mary Keenan

Michael Hannon

Carmel O Grady

Thomas Cowzer

Thomas McDermot


With  the help and guidence of Denis Patrick who we owe a great deal of thanks for all his hard work on our behalf

We entered our first Winter league competition in 2010 and in 2011 we played in division 5

We also owe a big thank you to Greenhills indoor bowls for their generous donation of 1000 Euro,s  which helped us  a lot 



The very first competitive match played on our new green was on  2010 but not by Greenhill,s as we were drawn away but by Crumlin V CYM

Our very first competitive match was away to Greystones played at Shankill in the 2010-2011 All weather bowling league

Our very first home game was on the 30th Oct 2010 against Dun Laoire

The clubs 1st Game in the BLI was 2011 Devision 5 V Leinster



Right from the start we had a roll up every Wednesday which is still going strong to this day

 In 2012 all the members backed a decision to purchase our own clubhouse  so with a loan from the Credit Union And an interest free loan of 15 Thousand Euro from the BLI which was a great help  we managed to Purchase a building which consists of a ladies&gents changing rooms' toilets' and a small kitchen.

All this Work from the formation of the club to the building of our clubhouse would not have happened only for the sheer determination and hard work of some of our present members  Namely

Joe Farrell

Our Chairman who spent hours  at meetings  with council officials ,planners,builders.To get this club up and running

Joe was and is a great organizer and motivator of people to move mountains to achieve the facilities which we enjoy very much today

Marie Mc Grane 

Marie's sheer determination and a will not fail attitude resulted in three years of very in dept hard work on our behalf which helped make this club what we have today

Christy Fenlon 

Christy brought a vast amount of experience to the table for meetings with council&planning officials and often helped swing the balance of whether we achieved or failed in the tasks at hand
