Get your ducks in a row
This August Bank Holiday Monday at 2pm in Banteer the annual duck race takes place on the Glen River at Fr Murphy's Bridge, thanks to the kind permission of Seamus O'Keeffe.
This event is promoted by Banteer Community Sportsfield Ltd and over 500 ducks will take to the water in a controlled release and race to the finish line. Ducks are €5 each and are available from local sellers.
The prizes are: first €250, second €100, third - eighth €20.
Profits from the duck race will go towards paying for the upkeep and maintenance of the local sportsfield/park facilities which are used by young and old for sporting and leisure activities - so all support would be appreciated.
