The IWIBA wish to congratulate Sandra Bailie on being awarded an MBE in the King’s New Years Honours List 2023 for her services to the sport of bowls. Sandra has represented Ireland as an Indoor International player since 2005. She has won multiple Irish titles both indoor and outdoor and has also won two British Isles Indoor Championships. In recent years Sandra has been appointed the team manger of the re-established Irish Indoor U25 team, which has benefited greatly from her hard work and enthusiasm.

We send our best wishes to Sandra and her fellow recipients from the world of sport and beyond.
