So, what exactly is Irish road bowling? Many residents in the surrounding area have been familiar with this historic and interesting event for some time now. As illustrated on the websites All Events and Irish Around The World, Irish road bowling dates back to the 1600s, and traditionally involved the hurling of an iron ball in Ireland's countryside. The fewest throws of the dense ball along country roads and landscape is the way to win.
