The hotly anticipated All Ireland Wheelbarrow Championship is now open for entry. Demand is massive and spaces are limited so do not hang about. Teams will be made up of a male and a female with both parties pushing the wheelbarrow for 100m. For safety reasons and because of the substantial costs involved the wheel barrow will be empty. This is a straight forward dash 100m in both directions. Competitors will be required to wear their county colours. They will also be required to participate in the pre-race parade so the punters can size them up. There will be 8 races of 12 teams with the top three progressing to the semi-finals and the final where we will crown The All Ireland Wheelbarrow Champions. This is a fun event and all shapes and size are welcome to participate.

This event is free for the general public to attend and support. There will be different activities for all ages, bouncy castles, kids races, face painting, ice cream, sweets, food, coffee/tea, DJ and lots of fun for all.

Please support this great event on the day for a good cause.
