News & Events

  • Magical Mayo!

    A huge thank you to Grainne Mhaol dragon boat club. The paddlers were amazing hosts to the Plurabelles who took a trip westward in early October.

    Lough Lannagh near Castebar, Co. Mayo, looked magical on a beautiful, sunny, autumn day as the Plurabelles joined members of Grainne Mhaol for a training session on the water. Simply stunning (view photos).

  • It’s a wrap! 2018 Dublin Hong Kong Dragon Boat Regatta

    There are some very sore and weary Plurabelles after the Dublin Hong Kong Dragon Boat Regatta. But while bodies may be wrecked; souls are singing!

    Memories of the weekend will stay with us forever. We made new friends, old friendships were rekindled and, of course, there were nail-biting races. There’s even talk that we may have done our fastest 400m – ever!

    What a fabulous occasion (view photos here). If the newbie Plurabelles weren’t hooked before, they certainly are now!

    We are so proud to be involved with this event, and to show-off the Grand Canal Dock to paddlers who come from near and far. We are also delighted to see the sport that we love so much, develop and thrive in Ireland. It was a lonely spot to be the first dragon boat racing club in the country, but now there are loads of clubs and some serious, serious competition!

    Congratulations to all the winners at this year’s regatta. You did great. We’re looking forward to next year already… bring it on!

  • 4 silvers at the Europeans!

    Terrific news from Brandenburg an der Havel, Germany where the EDBF European Nations Championship took place (23-26 August). The Irish team (featuring 5 Plurabelles & our coach Julie) have secured 4 silver medals.

    What a fantastic achievement! Guess they’ll be needing an extra baggage allowance with all that metal!
