There will be individual and team prizes on the night.  The events will follow closely one after the other and the programme will be completed by 7pm.  Entry fee of 1euro per athlete is payable on the night.  There is no entry fee for schools or parents. All interested children and parents are welcome. This event is also being supported by the Waterford Sports Partnership.
