Regatta…in the rain!

Congratulations to the team from Plurabelle Paddlers who – despite the inclement weather – finished the recent Athy Regatta in a very impressive 4th place overall. (View a video of the Plurabelles in action at the Athy regatta here – with thanks to Mairead)

Although the Plurabelles emerged as the top breast cancer club at the regatta, there is no time for celebrations; attention is now focused on the forthcoming Barrow Regatta in Carlow on the 11th June. Let’s just hope for better weather! (details of race results and forthcoming regattas can be found on the IDBA website)

  • Radio documentary charting club’s early days

    Did you hear a repeat of the award-winning RTE radio documentary ‘In the Same Boat’ in late October?
    The documentary – which was first aired in late 2010 – charts the heady early days of Plurabelle Paddlers, Ireland’s very first dragon boat club. Lots has changed since 2010 (we’ve travelled the world, won medals, partied, made new friends, and said goodbye to cherished loved ones)
    This radio documentary is well worth a listen. So, treat yourself. Put the kettle on, sit back and enjoy listening to this truly inspirational story! Click here

  • It’s in the black bag!

    A mountain of black bags (view pics) were collected from the clubhouse (October 2017) as Plurabelle Paddlers (& friends) cleared out their wardrobes in aid of the Plurabelle team heading to the IBPCP regatta in Florence in 2018.  Well done to Mairead, and to the many helpers/ collectors. Guess you’ll just have to go shopping now to fill in the gaps in your wardrobe!

  • Plurabelles interviewed ‘as Gaeilge’
