“Donald Phelps” – A Favourite in Superbly Successful Millstreet G.A.A. Fundraising Duck Race at Clara Road this Monday Evening!

Checking the results in the superbly successful Millstreet G.A.A. fundraising Duck Race held this Monday evening, 6th August 2012 at Clara Road.    The winning Ducks were owned by:  Mary Cashman, Tullig (1st);  Claire Downey (2nd);  Donal Corcoran (3rd).   The best named Duck “Donald Phelps” was suggested by Margaret O’Sullivan, Rathcoole.   It certainly was a quacking event!  (S.R.)

Blessed with a fine evening, with horses, calves and colourful flowers adding to the atmosphere on Clara Road – the exciting event attracted an enthusiastic audience observing from Clara Road Bridge as Michael Murphy and Eric Hickey released hundreds of plastic ducks that flowed gently down to the finishing point under the Bridge.  The success of the event and the funds raised seems to point to the occasion becoming an annual event.   John Tarrant captured some excellent pictures for the “Corkman”.   Sincere congrats. to the dedicated Organisers and to the various winners.     (S.R.)
