Munster Tug of War
There was outstanding pulling yesterday at the Munster Tug of War Championships held in Conna hosted by the Conna Vintage Rally Club.
The 700kg was the main competition of the day where a total of 8 teams competed and they were: The Shop, The Mill, Farrenreigh, all from Co Tipperary, Harps, Ballyhooly, Araglen A & B, Cuan Rithe, all from Co Cork,
And after some close tough pulling the four teams to get into the semi finals were the Shop v Ballyhooly in which the Shop took this in two straight ends, and in the other semi final it was between Cuan Rithe v Araglen in which Cuan Rithe took this in two straight ends, so in the final it was between Cuan Rithe v the Shop here Cuan Rithe took the first end but the Shop came back in the second end to take it after a close one and the Shop went on to take the third end after a tough one to claim the senior title and the gold medals.
In the novice final it was between the Mill v Farrenreigh this was a close one also but the Mill proved to be the stronger by taking it in two straight ends to take the title and the gold medals.
