HRH Prince Leonard is proud to announce that the Principality
The event, which is based on age-old lumberjack traditions and commonplace
across Germany and Austria, will see members of the public competing to
determine the Irish distance record for throwing a standard 1.5 metre tree.
The Current World Record is held by Klaus Pubnaz who hurled a tree a
distance of 12m at an event in Germany in December 2010.
This a sporting charity event organised by Ennis Town Council and Clare County Council with competitors from the four corners of Ireland being invited to take part, with all funds raised going toward different charities each year. The first championships held in 2012 saw funds raised go towards building a new dog shelter in Ennis whilst the 2013 championships will raise funds for the Clare branch of Cystic Fibrosis.
. It is hoped that this Championship will become
a yearly event and will be a precursor to Ennis holding the European
championship at some point in the future”,
