Mayobridge Club Day and Annual Duck Derby a Tremendous Success!!

On a May bank holiday weekend Mayobridge GAC hosted its annual club day and Duck Derby race of 2019! Mass was celebrated in our church and we were delighted to have our fantastic Mayobridge band lead the procession to our club playing fields. This was a wonderful event which brought the whole community together and it was great to see so many people come out to support it. At 3pm all gathered around the river while Sean Rooney and Jimmy Coulter released the ducks.
The crowd anxiously awaited to see which duck would cross the finish line! Congratulations to Naiomh O’Reilly, Peter Ruddy and Aislinn Sexton whose ducks came in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
A huge thanks to the organisers of the Duck Derby contest, Thomas, Deirdre and Helen Coulter for their sterling work in organising our annual Duck Derby event. To Sean Rooney, Jimmy Coulter, Eamon Fitzpatrick and Enda McConville who made sure all the ducks made it to the finish line😉. To Gillian Fitzpatrick for her running commentary today and to all the volunteers who left in sandwiches, tray bakes and helped serve tea and coffee earlier today at the Club. The band, ‘Lift the Roof’ provided live music in the club from 5pm on. A super day was had by all!!💙💙
