Clonmel Show Vice-President Dr. Richard Quirke and co-chairpersons Clare Wilkinson and Mike Quirke presented the boat to the volunteer River Rescue group at Kilsheelan Bridge. 

 Many other members of the Clonmel Show committee were also in attendance on this most enjoyable occasion.

Nine of Carrick on Suir River Rescue's 20 volunteers were in attendance at the hand over of the boat. 

Carrick-on-Suir River Rescue Chairman Bobby Power and Vice Chairman Mick Power received the new boat on behalf of the organisation. 

Bobby Power thanked the committee of Clonmel Show for the donation and said the new boat would be most valuable to them.  

Clonmel Show Co-Chairman Mike Quirke wished the volunteers all the very best with the new boat and with their ongoing invaluable work.
