The inaugural Irish Christmas Tree Throwing Championship takes place on January 7th 2012 in Ennis, Co Clare. All proceeds raised will go toward the development of a new Clare County Dog Shelter.
- 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.
- Members of the media are invited to attend the event. Photograph and interview opportunities will be provided. A full media release may be viewed at www.dunphypr.com
