Dick Flaherty


If it weren’t for the dreams of some of the owners of bowling lanes, there would not be bowling as there is today and has been for the past 75 years.


PC Flaherty started the Flaherty bowling center in 1938 on Raymond and University with just 6 lanes.  In 1949 he moved to Snelling and Larpenteur where he installed 12 lanes in the basement of the shopping center.  In 1959 PC retired and Richard took over the operation of Flaherty’s.  Under Richard’s great business knowledge, seeing that 12 lanes were getting too small, they opened up a new center in Arden Hills in 1963 with 24 lanes and a full kitchen and bar.  The next 15 years were busy years; Richard spent time from open to close watching the business grow.  In 1978, Flaherty’s added 12 additional lanes to the current location to accommodate the larger number of bowlers.


Over the years, Flaherty’s has built a great youth bowling program.  Some of the great names that have come out of this program are: Amanda Burgoyne Vermilyea, Erik Vermilyea, Luke Voaklander, Carl Poelzer.  Richard was very supportive to help the youth program grow to 2 shifts on Saturdays and a Sunday Adult/Youth  league


He was instrumental in hosting many of the local and state tournaments.  Some of the tournaments Flaherty’s hosted are: Women’s State, St Paul Senior City, Open and Mixed Team Challenge, St Paul Youth City Championship. 


Richard was an avid bowler bowling leagues and tournaments.  He has a 300 game to his credit.  But spent more time running the business to make sure the league bowlers and the everyday bowler would have a great time while at Flaherty’s.


He retired from day-to-day operations in 1997.  If you visit Flahery’s Arden Bowl, you can still see the ground work that Richard put in to the business today.  Friendly atmosphere, great service, and bowling for young and all.
