Rosemary Phelan has been named as this year’s recipient of the Spirit of Plurabelle award (as nominated by club members). The beautiful trophy was presented to Rosemary in memory of Fiona Tiernan, who, along with Marian O’Dea and Julie Doyle, founded the club thirteen years ago. The award was presented to Rosemary by Fiona’s son Oscar, who, as a child, regularly drummed on the boat.
As a sports club, the Plurabelle Paddlers love to race and compete. The fact that the Plurabelle Paddlers have two teams racing in the Athy Regatta is testament to Rosemary’s hard work and dedication. She has worked tirelessly over the years to ensure that all club members are prepared and are in top shape for each race.
Thank you, Rosemary, for all that you have done for the Plurabelles and congratulations on your very well-deserved award.
