Watch: A glimpse of what it's like at World Indoor Tug of War Championships in Donegal

Colourful event getting lots of praise

Day two of the Tug of War International Federation's World Indoor Tug of War Championships has seen plenty of action at the event being staged in Donegal.

Indeed, the Mountain View club from Ireland took the honours in the 640kg men's event. One of the team, Andrew McGonagle, is from Donegal.

Meanwhile, Clonmany A and Clonmany B have both been competing in the men's 600kg event.

The action continues tomorrow and on Sunday with teams from nations all around the world taking part. Ireland will be presented by Clonmany.

It may be wet and gloomy outside but inside the Aura venue is awash with colour.

And there has been a great reaction from those in attendance, especially from those who are watching the sport live for the first time ever.
