With the provincial championships drawing to a close, the Lavalley club are getting ready to host the first national outdoor championship of the season at the Roundfort Agricultural show near Ballinrobe in Co. Mayo on Sunday next the 13th of June.
This championship sees the return of the open catchweight competition where the senior and Div 2 titles will be decided. There will be a non-championship 680kilo novice competition (gold, silver & bronze medals presented). A 6-a-side ladies non-championship catchweight fixture has also been added (gold, silver & bronze medals presented). The weigh-in for the 680kg novice is from 11:30 – 12:30 with the competition commencing at 1pm. If a number of novice teams wish to enter both the 680kg open and the open catchweight then both competitions will not run at the same time. Entry for pullers into the show is EUR5.
