Eddie  O’Malley President ITOWA 


I am writing today sharing the concerns I have in relation to the current  Covid -19 health pandemic  and to hopefully clarify the I.T.O.W.A position for you the member and your club.
We in the ITOWA Executive, appreciate this is a difficult time for you and your club, let alone your families, colleagues and indeed the wider community. We all as members and citizens need to adhere to the social distancing guidelines, HSE & government advice.  

With this in mind all collective training by clubs is suspended until further notice.  Individual training by members may continue and it is something that we would greatly encourage. 

We look forward to welcoming you  all again to our tug of war events when all of these challenging events have passed.Stay safe, stay healthy. 
Best wishes Eddie O ‘ Malley
President ITOWA 


This is Rebecca one of our Female members from Lakers, Rebecca takes part in tug of war

The Irish Tug Of War Association, introduced Lakers to Tug of War back in February 2016 with an exhibition and sampling day in the centre

The enthusiasm on the day led us to adding Tug of War training onto the weekly timetable from April 2016.

The participants from all age ranges and abilities enjoy the class immensely, from the core training, the teamwork and the challenges they overcome each week.

The Irish tug of war has developed a great class which, along with the above, builds confidence self-esteem amongst the members.

The class continues to grow from strength to strength and they have also been introduced to open pulls at local competitions and at the ITOWA Nationals
