Test your precision hurling skills by hitting a floating target on the Shannon! Or if spectating is your thing, we would be delighted to welcome you.
The concept of the competition originates in the Irish legend of “Táin Bó Cuailgne” when Cúchulainn, who as the boy Setanta set out from his home at Dún Dealgan to the King’s court at Emain Macha hitting his sliotar before him and running ahead to catch it.
The event organised by Offaly Search and Recovery; is a prelude for their annual fundraiser which takes place on 1st August 2022 in St. Brendan’s Park, Birr.
