Huge thanks to all of the local community, families and friends who turned out to support a Grand Slam St. Patrick’s Day 2018 Wheelbarrow Dash in Thomastown! Despite the bitterly cold weather and flooding, a total of 48 wheelbarrows were registered and over €700 was raised for the Thomastown Community River Trust.
We are very excited to be hosting the KCLR Lunch show with John Keane on Thursday 15 March!
The popular 12–3pm show will be broadcast live from Thomastown Community Centre on Marshes Street, previewing our upcoming St. Patrick’s Day festivities: the Wheelbarrow Dash and Wet the Shamrock.
Wheelbarrows walk the walk, and talk the talk!
Wheelbarrow Dash entrants are invited to bring their finished creations along to the show to feature in a live ‘catwalk’ segment… in which John Keane will be revealing some of the hottest wheelbarrow trends set to hit the streets of Thomastown this St. Patrick’s Day! 😎
🎙 On the show we hope to share the stories and ideas of as many Wheelbarrow Dash and Wet the Shamrock participants as possible. If you would like to be involved in this live broadcast, please contact us ASAP at email@example.com
We’ll also be sharing more from behind-the-scenes during the show on our Facebook Page:
📻 Tune in to KCLR 96fm next Thursday, 15 March from 12–3pm! ☘
Thomastown Community Network is revving up for another wheely great St. Patrick’s Day get-together… as the Wheelbarrow Dash returns!
This year’s parade will be followed by the Thomastown Community River Trust’s annual Wet the Shamrock river swim.
Everybody from local businesses, to community groups and families are invited to decorate their wheelbarrows in any manner or theme that they like – the crazier, the better! Over sixty wheelbarrows entered last year’s event – creating a fun and colourful spectacle featuring all ages and some fantastic creativity. This year’s Wheelbarrow Dash promises to be even more exciting! The event is free, and all are welcome.
The 2-Hour Gang are an enthusiastic team of volunteers lending a hand to help keep Thomastown spick and span. Every Saturday morning the Gang meet in the Quay Car Park at 9am before heading to a chosen location for two hours of tidying and clean-up… with a healthy bit of craic thrown in for good measure. All are welcome!
