This is the 1997 (I think) visit to Arklow in May. The trip was to conduct the 2nd Balloon Race which was planned to coincide with the start of the Celtic Challenge Rowing Race. However the Rowing Race was brought forward because of the weather forcast so the balloons were released after the start.
I took the boat across to sail back with the Race. In the end I was hijacked by the Arklow Rowing team and was their lead boat for the race to Aber, which was great fun and really in the twinning spirit I thought.
Arklow Lions also brought forward their charter night to coincide with the weekend and it was the first official trip for Abers Lions wive's to Arklow
Circa late 90's "Ladies Entertain" Well, thats what the evening was billed as. Infact they put together "Just A Minute" Not quite what we were expecting but a highly enjoyable evening. Watching this again while loading it had me in stiches. You must watch this to the end, I wont say why here and risk spoiling the fun.

These are a few cips from Arklow Lions Twinning Visit to Aber. The best bit is right at the begining when Sue shows Robbie from Arklow how to do the Jig.
