Twice a year teams are invited to take part in this spectacular event on the River Lee in the heart of Cork City. With some of the biggest companies and organisations in Cork participating in the challenge, the rivalry can be fierce both on and off the water. With over 300 participants on the day, the river pulses to the beat of the Dragon Drum and the boardwalk comes alive with the Dragons Roar.

Started in 2013, the event is an important fundraiser for Meitheal Mara which is a community boatyard, local charity and nationally-accredited training centre in the heart of Cork city. The organisation is dedicated to promoting and fostering maritime culture and traditional skills through currach and wooden boat building, as well as woodwork and seamanship as the means to help groups of people and individuals to learn, progress and develop.
