Tug of Love; Killaloe
23 March 2013
16:00 - 18:30
Come and join us in the tug of love across the beautiful 13 arch bridge on the River Shannon in Killaloe on Saturday 23rd March at 4pm. To launch the new “Love Weekends” in Killaloe / Ballina, the twin towns are holding a tug of love where instead of a tug of war, you’ll get the chance to pit yourself against your partner in a tug of love across the bridge.
• Join in the tug of love across the bridge – our inaugural ‘tug of love’
• The first 8 couples to be there on the day get the chance to be involved in our Tug of love and if they win, to become our love champions. Be featured on RTE’s Local Heroes programme airing in June 2013.
• The tug of love starts at 4pm but if you interested in participating, please be at the bridge for 3.30pm on 23rd March for a briefing. Meet in the car park on the Killaloe side of the Bridge “Between the waters” car park.
