Roundwood Festival 2014

By Roundwood & District Community Council

The canoe race on the Vartry Reservoir was another hit of the 2013 festival and so again this year, with the support of Irish Water Plc, the race will take place on Saturday evening at 5pm. The race is open to all aged 13 year and over and is fully supervised. Registration for contestants opens from 4:30pm with an entry fee of €5. Competitors must be able to swim. The race will be less than 500m in length. Canoes and safety equipment will be provided. Due to the risk of water contamination competitors cannot bring their own canoes/kayaks.So head down to the Upper Reservoir Dam to see how some of the land lubbers take to the water and cheer them on! Parking is available on the Bray Road at Roundwood AFC's Vartry grounds where you can walk safely to the viewing and race area. Come along and have a go! Tis great fun!
