All Ireland League (Round 3) Tug of War Competition

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. 

As for the pulling we had the privilege of seeing 9 teams in the 600 kg and 11 teams in the 680 kg from throughout Ireland, from Cork to Kilkeel. The 2 stand out teams on the day were Bancran from the NITOWA and G&B from the ITOWA who shared the spoils in the 2 finals. 

A special thanks to all of the officials, Alan & Annabelle and the Country Club who hosted the event, especially Vernon Hurst.
