National 600kg Championships The Farm

HEAVE HO FOR A REAL CROWDPULLER AT THE FARM THIS WEEKEND

There’ll be lots of heaving and taut muscles at The Farm in Grenagh this Sunday, August 10th as the venue hosts the National 600kg Tug of War Championships.

This is the second year that over 400 athletes from around Ireland will make their way to the County Cork site as they engage in round 5 of 6 championship events.

Organised by Donoughmore Tug of War, the event location was a massive success in 2013. PRO Eamonn Buckley says there was no doubt in the committee’s mind in booking again for 2014.

Involved with Tug of War at various levels for almost 20 years, Eamonn knows a good venue when he sees one. “The Farm provides one of the best sites in the country, lots of open space, parking, changing facilities and restaurant, which is perfect for the type of event that we run. We’re very proud as a club to be able to host our round of the National Championships in such an accessible location, between Cork and Mallow and just off the main road”.

With initiatives underway to promote the sport in primary and secondary schools, Eamonn is encouraging people to come and see what’s involved. “This is one of the most inclusive sports you can get, almost anyone can join a team and be called into action”, he says.

Sunday’s events will see various competitions, from senior, division 2, mixed and novices, to Under 23 and youth leagues, as well as national school teams and Macra na Feirme are also holding an all Munster day event.

Mick Forde of The Farm is delighted to welcome the event back for 2014. “It’s a terrific vote of confidence in what The Farm has to offer and we hope it’s the start of a long relationship with the Tug of War Championships”.

As if the Tug of War isn’t enough, spectators on the day can also feast their eyes on a dog agility display, Macra na Feirme tractor driving competitions, barley harvesting, spend time in the Old Time Village, with working forge, garage, school room, milking parlour and entertain the kids by petting the animals or using the indoor and outdoor play areas.

The Farm is open 7 days a week, 364 days a year. Entry is at the usual price of €8.
