Battling on land and water at Vikingdom

Sinead Kelleher

It was a day of fun on and off the water in Kenmare on Saturday as Vikingdom Raft Race arrived to town and with it a host of fun activities for all the family.

The four and six-man raft race saw 14 rafts battle it out on the water and the Holbein family once again proved their prowess on the water winning both races with two hand-made rafts. 

With a host of local crews on there was plenty of friendly rivalry as teams raced each other around the buoys. Then it was on to nearby grounds at Kenmare Pier for an afternoon of activities from children's tug of war and viking battles along with life music and festival treats as locals and visitors alike enjoyed a wonderful day of festivities.

The annual community event also raised funds for mindfulness ad  Pobailscoil Inbhear Sceine and Scoil Phobail Bheara. 

Roll on next year!
