Ducks and More Ducks!

Hundreds of ducks will return to the river Maigue at Bruree in late September but thankfully none of them will be at risk from mink or other predators. The ducks will race down the river as part of a Family Fun Day being organised by Bruree GAA on Sunday 25th September at Bruree Sportsfield. The entertainment at the sportsfield will run from 1.00 to 5.00 p.m. and events will include an underage hurling blitz, pony rides, live music, tug of war and a barbeque. GAA celebrities will also attend. The prize to the sponsor of the winning duck will be a flat screen television and there will be numerous other prizes for placed ducks. You can sign up as a duck sponsor with any member of the club committee and the cost is only €5.
