Community, What's On
As part of Newry’s first “Festival of Water”on Sunday 1st September, the Inland Waterways Association of Ireland are hosting the traditional Bath Tub Race on the Canal. This event is open to the entire community, businesses, individuals and clubs alike. As part of the drive to encourage young people to apply their knowledge, skills and ideas and enjoy a spectacular day on the Newry Canal, Abbey Event Management and other local businesses have joined forces to supply sets of materials that will be given to local groups to construct crafts. These include 3,500 plastic bottles, glue, paddles, plywood and lengths of timber. Entries will be judged on originality, speed and build quality. For further information regarding where to source these materials to build your raft please contact Abbey Event Management on 02830835700 or follow Newry and Mourne District Council on Facebook for regular updates.
