Unbelieva-bowl! thumbnailRachel receiving the Irish Indoor Bowling Association Ladies Singles Championship trophy from Flo McNally, President of the IIBA

A LIMAVADY teenager said she is "absolutely delighted" to have gone one step further than her two grannies by being crowned Irish Indoor Bowling Association (IIBA) ladies champion.
Limavady Grammar pupil Rachel Cochrane became the youngest ever winner of the title on Saturday, April 7, in Banbridge Leisure Centre, after a tense final bowl winner.
Rachel, 14, caught the bowling bug from both her grandmothers seven years ago at the age of seven and has worked hard to rise through the ranks to now become Irish Champion.
Ambitious Rachel won four games to get through the North West qualifiers and then won three games in Belfast to reach the final in Banbridge.
Proud parents Noeleen and Ricky encourage and support all their kids who all have bowls bowling through their veins.
