Tractors turn out for fundraiser

Almost 80 tractors turned out in glorious sunshine for the recent Tractor Run Fund Raiser on behalf of Killurin Rowing Club.

Clubs travelled from far and near to participate in the event and numbers were well up on previous years. Gratitude is extended to anyone who helped in any way including the participants, the sponsors, the marshals and last but not least the ladies with the refreshments. A great day was had by all. Thank you all for your support.


A bus has been organised to attend the Tullamore Show (Offaly) this year. The trip will take place on the 12th August and will cost €20 and is a very enjoyable day out. Please contact Teddy on 087 6942814 for further enquiries.

The club had a very successful first regatta at Edermine with medals at both junior and senior level. The regatta was very well supported and a big thanks to all you came out in the Ferrycarrig colours to cheer the crews on, despite the bad weather on Sunday. All attention now turns to St. Kearns for next Sunday's regatta.
