We are delighted to announce that the Irish Dragon Boat Association has won 2nd place in the Commercial Operators section of The Barrow Awards Scheme 2018. The Awards are organised by Carlow Tourism, Kildare Tourism, Kilkenny Tourism, Laois Tourism and Wexford Tourism and supported by the County Councils of Carlow Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois and Wexford, Waterways Ireland and the Inland Waterways Association of Ireland.

The objective of this annual competition is to focus attention on the many aspects and assets of this important Waterway, the River Barrow and its adjacent environs. Given the investment of commercial operators in the development of the river a new category was introduced in 2014 to represent their interests.
