Thanks to all who took part, and to Diarmuid Reddan, Fearghal O’Boyle, and Mairead Basquille for all their effort in organising a most successful weekend, which raised substantial funds for a number of very deserving charities. Although they will never tell you so, please be assured that you have NO IDEA how much work goes into preparing for and running a multi-competition event such as this; we are very fortunate to be able to call on the services of such an efficient and hard-working team.
