Road Bowling, America's Latest Irish Import

Road bowling has been played in Ireland for over 300 years. David Powell saw the game on TV and brought it back to Ireland, West Virginia. Bowlers hurl an iron and steel ball down a country road. Like golf, the player or team who reaches the finish line in the fewest shots wins.
