Our major event for 2014 was the trip to the Erne system in August which went very well. The total fleet ended up in the mid thirties of which nearly twenty were of the older and larger lady category. Apart from those who put months into planning the event, our gratitude is extended to all in the region who made the event a memorable one

An excellent video commissioned by Waterways Ireland on the trip was premiered at a reception in their headquarters was based on our association and the delivery of a Bollinder engine to Enniskillen for display in the HQ foyer
