Walls was one of 60 property industry teams that took part in the inaugural Dragons at the Docks in aid of Dublin Simon Community on 31st August. On a sunny afternoon, those present in Grand Canal Dock were treated to the sight of long, slim boats gliding through the water, with painted dragons at their helms and oarsmen of various shapes and sizes trying desperately to beat their rivals.
With 10 participants entered in the Contractors category the Walls team qualified for the final in superb fashion. Our team of 10 took an early lead but then tired towards the end and were vanquished. The fact that our conquerors went on to win the overall event provided some consolation for the team at the post race festivities.
Congratulations to all who took part and a big thanks to our supporters. We are looking forward to competing again next year, with training to start shortly….
