News & Events

  • LMFM interview

    Did you hear the Plurabelle Paddlers (and Plurabelle, Gina) being mentioned in an interview on the LMFM Mid-Morning Show (on Friday, 15 September)? The interview between LMFM’s Daire Nelson and Roisin Lyons of Lyons Financial Services in Dunboyne can be heard here (go to 23 minutes). The Dunboyne-based company have recently won a nationwide workplace fitness competition (and experienced the excitement of a dragon boat regatta in the process!). Bet they’re now hooked!

  • Memories of the 2017 Hong Kong Dublin Dragon Boat Regatta

    It was a wonderful weekend of racing (& fun!) at the Hong Kong Dublin Dragon Boat Regatta.
    Thanks to Karen Byrne for the fabulous photos (view here), and to the hard-working organisers and paddlers for making the weekend such a great success. Visit YouTube for IDBA drone footage of the weekend (or use this link).

    We’ve rekindled old friendships this weekend and made many new friends. Hope to see you in Florence in 2018 or at the dock when we do all again next year…can’t wait!

  • We WON!

    Guess what? We won!
    Congratulations to the Plurabelle Paddlers team who WON the Breast Cancer category in the Hong Kong Dublin Dragon Boat regatta. Congratulations ladies….You were fierce!
    (well done also to the Purebelles who missed out on a place in the final by just a fraction of a second… it was so close ladies, you did brill)
    Enjoy the regatta party ladies… You deserve it! (Though, don’t forget that some of you are racing in day two of the regatta!)
