Introduction of our website and the latest news



The indoor season came to a glorious conclusion recently at Castlebar and I am delighted to say that the championships provided a fitting finale to another yearís competition. The compactness of the venue was a decided advantage and removed the necessity for transport between the accommodation and the competition arena which has often caused problems in the past.  All those involved on the organising committee were rewarded when their hard work came to fruition.

The competition itself featured some excellent pulling and some of the finals, particularly the Menís 600K and the Ladies 540K on Sunday, were really something special.  Those two must rank among the most enthralling and hard fought I have ever had the pleasure to witness either indoors or outdoors.

We now move on to our Annual General Meeting which this year takes place in Belfast, in my own part of the world.  I am aware that the Northern Ireland Executive has made every effort to provide a good base for the Congress when we assemble at the Ramada Hotel on the outskirts of Belfast.  We know that Northern Ireland is one of the longest serving members of TWIF and, of course, this will be the first Congress ever to be hosted there.

I look forward to greeting you all once again.


Cathal Mc Keever.

TWIF President.
