Bowling baker hoping to rise to top

Jennifer Dowds, a baker from County Antrim, is one of the Northern Ireland bowlers hoping to strike gold at this summer's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Dowds will be competing in the triples at Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls Centre alongside fellow Ballymena Club members Barbara Cameron and Donna McCloy.

"The Commonwealth Games are as high as we can go because bowls is not in the Olympics," said 54-year-old mum Dowds who has been playing bowls since 1995.
