Jemima the jumbo duck was spotted in Dungarvan centre on Saturday encouraging the general public to sponsor a duck in the upcoming RNLI Duck Race.
Following last year's Duck Race event (which was unfortunately cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns), this year's event will take place in Dungarvan town centre on the same weekend as the popular West Waterford Festival of Food.
This family fun event scheduled for Saturday, 11th June will see 600+ rubber ducks enter the water at 2pm in Dungarvan in aid of RNLI Helvick Lifeboat Station.
Prizes for the winning ducks include Dungarvan Chamber of Commerce vouchers of up top €100. Each duck costs €3 - or two for €5, and they can be bought online, at local An Rinn & Dungarvan businesses, and from a stall near Davitt’s Quay, Dungarvan Town Center at the festival.
All proceeds from the event will go directly to supporting critical operations at the RNLI.
