The largest paraglider airshow in Ireland was held in Finnavarra on Sunday 6th June.
The gliders took off from opposite New Quay Church and provided a great spectacle for anyone walking the Flaggy Shore before landing next to Linnalla Ice-cream for some well deserved treats.
Ger Coughlan from Ballinasloe and Sean Shannon from Bellharbour hosted 25 Para-gliders in Finavarra from all over the country. The riders hailed from Cavan, West Cork, Dublin and the Midlands.
Sam Gaffeny, a world standard para-glider delighted crowds with many death-defying tricks and stunts.
Many spectators commented that it was a delight to watch and that some of the stunts performed were beyond belief.
