Last Sunday kick started the outdoor season for the ladies, youths & under 23’s. Everyone braved the sleet showers and headed to Loughmore, Co Tipperary for the first of the training days with a view to building panels for the European Championships in Co. Mayo this September
The ladies were first up, and it was great to see some very familiar and some new faces on the day! Under the watchful eye of Gerry Ferguson, the ladies were put through their paces, working mainly on technique and planning the training for the season ahead
At 1pm, it was the turn of the Youths and U23’s. There was a very impressive number of pullers which is very encouraging to see. Again, technique was the main focus of the day, with the pullers being guided by coaches Gerry Ferguson & Eddie Fitzgerald.
This was a great start to what is looking to be a very promising season. We would like to thank Loughmore Tug of War club for the use of there facilities on the day.
