Cork Rolls to Victory

SUPPORTERS OF ARMAGH'S Sean O'Reilly celebrate a strong bowl on Cathedral Road during the Junior B catagory competition of the Road Bowls All Ireland Finals.

Armagh's O'Reilly rolling the first ball (with Armagh Project video instructor Dustin Morrow in the background).

Enthusiasts and gamblers crowd the street while waiting for a roll ...

... and they scatter as the 20 ounce steel ball rolls past.

Hundreds of people followed the event down a long stretch of road. The finals are the culmination of months of competition.

Some people found the long stroll rather tiring.

In the end, it was County Cork's Ger Fitzpatrick who took the championship in the category. He topped O'Reilly by a full roll.
