Pool Final result…

Thomas Cronan 5-4 David Conroy

A very tense and exciting final was the perfect cap to a really great day.  The top prize of a weekend away to Donegal with spending money. Enjoy it Thomas.

The tournament was a big success and all the proceeds went to Rooskey Heritage Festival kitty.

We’d like to thank everyone who sponsored the event and provided many prizes for the raffle on the day.  These included vouchers for Leitrim Physiotherapy, Carrick Quad racing, Harkins Bistro, Silver Eel, Copper Still, Cox’s Steakhouse, Strokestown Golf Course 4 rounds of golf…

A special thanks to Gary who pulled out all the stops to make the event a huge success.

We are delighted to announce that The Shannon Boat Rally will be arriving in Rooskey the weekend of our Festival. Up to one hundred boats are expected to participate in the Rally and we welcome them all.

We have been asked by several people if the can take part in the Rooskey Duck Derby on Easter Sunday even though they are not in the area over the period. THANKS FOR THE INTEREST AND SUPPORT.


We have decided to run a separate competition for all those who want to take part but are not around to buy a line locally.


How it works:

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

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 Easter Sunday around 2:00 (ish!)

5. The first three (3) ducks over the line will get a prize. €100 for 1st, €75 for 2nd, and €50 for third.

Simple (we hope!)

All profits go towards the Rooskey Heritage Festival.

We hope to have a video of the even that we can put up on the web afterwards.
