Duck Race 2010
It didn't look so great on Easter Saturday morning, but the sun eventually broke through and there was wonderful weather for the annual Duck Race at McKenna's Brook in Ballyshannon and a large crowd gathered to enjoy the afternoon's entertainment organised by the Aodh Ruadh Ladies Committee. Teddy Kane had the ducks under starter's orders and Colman Kerr on hand to scoop the winning ducks out of the brook. A raffle was held for Easter eggs after each race and there can't have been too many who went home without an egg. The final race decided the winners of the cash prizes on offer. First duck home belonged to Claire Toolan winning her €100. Second was Katie Flood who won €50. They were followed by Paruic Gaffney, Shane Delahunty and Mick McGrath who each won prizes of €30. Many thanks to all who attended the event, as well as everyone who helped out on the day and made it such a success.
