Walls was amongst the 72 property industry teams that took part in the second annual ‘Dragons at the Docks’ in aid of Dublin Simon Community on 30th August.
In perfect weather, those present in Grand Canal Dock were treated to the sight of boats gliding through the water, with painted dragons at their helms and oarsmen and oarswomen of various shapes and sizes trying desperately to beat their rivals.
We were in the second heat of the Contractors category and despite a valiant effort by our team of 10 we just missed out on qualifying for the final. On reflection, this may have been strategic, as the enjoyment shoreside was better than on the water and the team needed no encouragement to participate fully in the festivities.
Congratulations to all who took part and a big thanks to our supporters. We are looking forward to competing again next year.
