About Irish Road BowlingIrish Road Bowling consists of a ball made out of iron and steel that is heavy enough to pick up speed, yet small enough for any person to handle. Besides the basic rules and terms, all you do is hurl this 28 oz. sized "bowl" with an underhand motion over a one to two mile country road and see how far it goes! Team events are played with teams of three or four bowlers. Scored like golf, the fewest number of shots from the start to the finish line wins.
