Gandelows Move to Venice After Battle of Clontarf Victory

#gandelow – Fresh from their millenial victory at the Clontarf replay on April 23rd 2014, the Munstermen in their Viking Gandelows move on this week to Venice where they plan to take the city by storm.

Aided by gallant oarsmen and gallies from within the Adriatic city, and having cleared the pearly waters from the oppressive presence of the monster cruiser ships, the Limerick squadron plans to sweep the waters of the lagoon.

Led by the Mayor of Limerick, Kathleen Leddin, this Limerick raid on the Pearl of the Adriatic hopes to bring home, among other treasures, the secrets of how best and most profitably to ply the shallow waters of estuary and lagoon and how most beautifully to engage with the deep waters of the seas beyond.
