They did it again folks - another great festival from the Kildare branch over the holiday weekend. Twenty five barges and boats arrived in harbour over the weekend. The committee and helpers did us proud and the boats sparkled with lights, frost, blue flags and the new Kildare branch look in burgees and bunting.

Many thanks to the RNLI for showing us how to check our lifejackets. They also inspected them. Many did not pass and we all left with instructions on how to make them operate again. The IWAI stand was open for business and the first ten who registered received some boating items compliments of Ted Johnsons.
On Sunday a group of large and small boats meandered down the Corbally branch in brilliant sunshine to The Obstruction. After climbing over the N7, the small boats continued to the end of the line. Refreshments were available before all explored the harbour. While the source of the spring which feeds the Corbally and Naas Line cannot be seen due to high vegetation, the flow of water from the spring can be heard.
When everyone was back safely in Naas, there was a get together in the Townhouse for an evening of prize giving and entertainment.
