News & Events

  • 10K? No problem to the Plurabelles!

    Well, they survived it… in fact, they did a lot more than survive it!

    The Plurabelles were the fastest all-female team at the 10K Dragon Run in Carlow on Sunday, 24th March. How’s that for an amazing result?!

    The Plurabelles came in 4th overall, with a time of 1 hour 46 seconds. The composite team (including many Plurabelles) came in 5th.

    Well done ladies; you did great! Hopefully the wonderful memories from the day (and the satisfaction of paddling a whopping 10 kilometres) will offset any aches and exhaustion!

    Thank you to all concerned. It was a wonderful day. You can view photos here.

  • A Busy Year Ahead

    It’s a new year… and 2019 looks to be a busy one for the Plurabelles!

    Visit our Events page to see all the events that we’ll be competing in this year. Better get training!

  • A Plurabelle Christmas (by numbers!)

    65 (yes, 65!) hungry Plurabelles catered to a post-training hot Christmas brunch at the clubhouse (bacon, sausages, pudding, etc, followed by delicious homemade cakes and lashings of tea and coffee)

    50 individual gift bags for women spending Christmas in refuges – each bag contains a towel, a dressing gown, fluffy socks and a showel gel.

    40 of the gift bags filled within just 24 hours of the call going out to members of the club (how’s that for Plurabelle generosity?!)

    3 Dublin-based women’s refuges who will receive Christmas gift bags.

    1 AMAZING club!

    Special thanks to Janet, Ann-Marie and your team who cooked and prepared the food… ‘hostesses with the mostesses’! (view some photos of the brunch here)

    From the Plurabelles to all our friends and supporters – Happy Christmas!
