Craic'ing time in Killaloe

The Broom flotilla moored at KillaloeUK and Irish members joined forces at the weekend for a fantastic weekend on the river Shannon, joined by staff from Broom Boats and the Irish dealer, Aghinver Boat Company. 17 members made the trip across from the UK, with several hiring boats to enjoy the full Irish waterway experience, and others enjoying a stay at the Lakeside Hotel in Ballina. 14 Irish members were present at the event on boats ranging from a Broom 30 to a 425, with one new member signed up during the weekend.
