There was plenty of action at the Killurin Regatta last week.

Participants from across the county took part in the very successful regatta with the hosts taking much of the honours.

These were numerous classes on the day and many of the races had very exciting and tense finishes with all teams giving their all in order to win.

The winning teams hailed from Killurin, Ferrycarrig, Edermine and St Kearns and there was plenty of friendly competitive banter exchanged on the day as each team vyied for honours.

There was a great turnout on the day with everyone commenting on how well the regatta was run.
