rubber-duck[1]Remember this guy?

Well he and 499 of his friends have landed in Rooskey in preparation for the 2nd Annual Rubber Duck Race, in aid of the Rooskey Heritage Festival.

1st May  is the date, please join in the fun. Turn up and watch the swarm of ducks racing.  Join in with the activities beside the river.  We will have music, games, and loads of activity at the river side to keep everyone happy.

We are hoping people will support the Duck Race again, as it was a fantastic success last year!

You can manage a duck in the race for €2. (quacken' value)  

The first three past the post will get a prize.

1st      €75

2nd   €50

3rd   €30

RETURN OF 'THE VIRTUAL DUCK RACE!'

We are also re running a separate competition for all those who want to take part but are not around to buy a line locally. We did it last year, and we got great support.

How it works:

1. Donate €2.00 to the Rooskey Heritage Festival using the button below.

2.  You will get a receipt from Paypal about your donation.

3. We will RANDOMLY SELECT a duck for you, and let you know the number.

4. The Duck Race will take place on Sunday May 1 around 2:00 (ish!)

5. The first three (3) ducks over the line will get a prize. €75 for 1st, €50 for 2nd, and €30 for third. Same as local competition.

All profits go towards the Rooskey Heritage Festival.

There will be cards available all around the village, and with committee members, so please support us and give yourself a chance to win.

Last year we ran short of ducks(!), so if you want to support us, get in early.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, IF YOU CAN TURN UP ON THE DAY, PLEASE DO SO.
ITS ALL ABOUT BRING LIFE TO THE VILLAGE. THE MORE THE MERRIER.
