The ancient sport of Road Bowling, known as 'Bullets', is still played along country roads. In this sport, two players throw a small metal ball (the bullet) along a set distance on a road. The winner is the player who finishes in the fewest throws. This sport is very popular in most parts of County Armagh, and parts of Cork.
