All Ireland Outdoor League 2017 – (Round 3)

This league competition was one of the best example of tug of war pulling that has been seen within the province for many years with a high number of teams within the both the 600 kg and 680 kg classes from throughout Ireland.

The facilities at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum Enniskillen were superb, an excellent weigh-in area and the pulling area was superb with great ground conditions.  The weather was also very good with a bright sunny day with the teams pulling beside Lough Erne, the whole thing could just  not get any better.
