Visiting boat owners entertained in the Tipperary town of Carrick-On-Suir.

The boat rally was organised by the Carrick-On-Suir Development Association in cooperation with the Inland Waterways Association who put on a day of entertainment for the visiting sailors.

Visitors were entertained by a brass band at the 16th century Ormond Castle, the former home of the Ormond family. The guests were also given a tour of the castle's main hall where they viewed a photographic exhibition from the book 'The Land of Ireland' by local author Brian de Breffny.

There was also poetry and drama reflecting on on the 600 year history of the castle. This was followed by traditional Irish music and dance, and a re-enactment of times gone by.
