  • 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!

  • Here Be Dragons!

    Good news… it’s still available and would make a perfect Christmas present!

    ‘HERE BE DRAGONS’ is a memoir of the Plurabelle Paddlers (though don’t worry, we’re not finished paddling and partying just yet!)

    The book includes lots of photos as well as short articles (written by various club members) on the formation of the club, the introduction of dragon boat racing to Ireland and the various regattas that we have competed in over the years. There are also contributions from foreign clubs and memories from Plurabelles who have paddled with clubs in distant parts of the world.

    As you know, we’re a shy and retiring bunch (ahem!). We don’t like to brag, but some of the early reviews include phrases like ‘the quality of the paper and the clarity of the photos are amazing'; ‘a book to cherish'; ‘smashing photos and well-written’. The book details ‘challenges, determination, fun, laughter and tears, but most of all friendship and comradeship.’

    The book (which costs €10) isn’t on general sale, but if you’d like to get your hands on a copy simply email info@plurabellepaddlers.com and we’ll be in touch.

    So, go on, treat yourself (or someone you love) to this beautiful book that tells our incredible story.

  • Torch of Hope

    Over the years, many Plurabelles have benefited from the extraordinary support offered by ARC Cancer Support. The Torch of Hope is more than a fundraiser, it’s an opportunity to show our appreciation to this wonderful Dublin-based voluntary organisation.

    So, thank you ARC from the Plurabelles… and well done to our representatives (who posed for photos with the Lord Mayor and also with Christy Dignam from the band Aslan – view photos). Have you no shame ladies?!
