20/08/2016 Well done to everyone who took part in the Blueway 10k on Saturday at the club.

A special thanks to Neil and the club for organising everything. The Blueway 10k is a Waterways Ireland and Canoeing Ireland initiative.

What an enjoyable day on Saturday 29th June - National Paddlesports Day! We had lots of enthusiastic beginners at the club giving it a go! AND the sun came out...eventually! By the time our paddlers came off the water Tim and Eamon had the bar-b-cue all fired up an ready to go! Thanks to everyone who came along and thanks to our usual reliable crew for helping out. Everyone enjoyed themselves!

Great day! Terrible weather but loads of water and good racing! Well done to everybody who raced. Some good results for the club too - Clodagh 2nd in women's gp, James 4th (3rd really) in men's junior gp, Micky Fitz and Micky Brennan 4th in K2 (with a broken rudder from Straffan ), Kevin and Mark 4th in Canadian double, Austin 5th Masters GP, Edel O'Sullivan 6th in Women's GP, Brendan Buggy 9th Men's Veteran GP and many more - not bad at all! Well done also to Eamon Fleming and his team doing the starts and finishes - it sounded like the K2s were giving you grief at the start Eamon! Thanks to the rescue team from the club covering Vanessa - the safest weir on the course!

20/08/3016 Simon Grennell comes third in the 5k National Sprint Championships on Saturday at SLCC. And that's after doing the Blueway 10k at the club! Well done Simon!
