Tickled Pink at Plurabelle Baby Shower

I think it’s safe to say that Plurabelle Paddler Ciara Devine was totally shocked and ‘tickled pink’ by the surprise baby shower hosted by the Plurabelles in the clubhouse yesterday.
Ciara’s due date for her second daughter is fast approaching and the Plurabelles were thrilled to celebrate such an exciting time for Ciara and her family.
When Ciara, her hubby Alan and daughter Fia called in to the clubhouse for a post-training coffee and they were met by a sea of pink. As well as balloons, cupcakes, there was also cake & a teddy bear for Fia , a hamper and a baby blanket (hand-knitted by many of the club members). No wonder Ciara was a little shell-shocked! Is there anything that the amazing Plurabelles can’t do?… Yes, they’re fantastic paddlers & tough competitors too…Well done ladies and best of luck Ciara!

  • Fun in the sun at the Athy Dragon Boat Regatta!

    What an amazing day we had at the Athy Dragon Boat Regatta… What a showcase for this exciting sport! The sun shone brightly as the two Plurabelle teams participated in competitive and exciting races. Well done to the Florence Belles – our team heading to Florence – who came 2nd in the women’s category.

    But today wasn’t only about the silverware. It was also about catching up with old friends and making memories with new ones (including the many newbies who travelled to Athy to cheer on the team).

  • AGM done. Tick!

    It’s been another busy year for the Plurabelle Paddlers, so there was lots to talk about at the AGM in the club house on Saturday, 21st April.

    As well as looking back, the Plurabelles we were also looking forward to what promises to be another exciting year for this vibrant club. Well done and thank you to Margaret, Susan, Margy, the other members of the committee and to the huge array of Plurabelles who do some much voluntary and unseen work for the club. Take a bow ladies!

  • Smiles at our Open Day

    Well, it’s not called a watersport for nothing! It was a wet introduction to dragon boat racing for the 20 or so newbies who braved the weather and arrived at the Grand Canal Dock earlier today for the open day training session. The session was arranged as a result of interest generated by our appearance on Operation Transformation earlier this year.

    The open day was a huge success. Not only did the newbies experience the exhilaration of dragon boat racing, but they also got to sample our famous hospitality in the clubhouse afterwards with coffee and lots of delicious cake (see photos of the day on our Pictures & Videos page).
