Dragon boating is an ancient Chinese sport which dates back over 2000 years to a time of rivalry, intrigue and corruption.  Join Chairman of the Irish Dragon Boat Association, Julie Doyle, to learn all about this ancient Chinese sport and the activities of the foundation.  A Dragon Boat will also be on display on Barnardo Square for all the view on Sunday 22nd of February from 12pm – 5pm.
