There are three levels of race this year with the inclusion of Ireland’s shortest adventure race for all participants over age 16 eligible to enter.
And if getting fit is one of your 2012 ambitions, like most people starting out for the first time, you’ll need a plan, some support and a few targets like the MonsterMAC challenge.
BabyMAC is part of the now popular MonsterMAC Adventure Challenge www.monstermac.ie offering an ideal distance for a beginner fitness enthusiast with a 3.5km run, 16km cycle and 400m kayak around a crannog lake. You’ll need your own bike and helmet, but the kayaks and compulsory buoyancy aids are provided and many of last year’s participants couldn’t kayak or swim! And you can meet with the more experienced athletes doing the longer distances that day – i.e. BigMAC and MonsterMAC. [read more …] “MonsterMAC 2012 – Time to get Fit”

This years Spring Farm Machinery Show has been changed to a two day show. Whilst attendance figures were excellent last year, exhibitors have expressed there thoughts on making it a busy two day show rather than three.

All the leading tractor and machinery dealerships in the area have already booked their stands and are looking forward to good kick off for 2012. This show is an ideal opportunity for both farmers and contractors alike to view the latest innovations in the agricultural and associated industries all under one venue.
