Advanced Paddling Course a huge Success

A big thanks to Julie and Mick, Louise, the committee and all involved in running today’s course.   Also thanks to Mayo Sports Partnership and the Castlebar Adventure Hub.

Members agreed we all learned loads and hopefully we will improve our paddling technique and ace the Athy Regatta!

Thanks to Lough Lannagh for providing a super lunch.

One of the benefits of being on the committee or being a helm, nudge nudge, wink wink 😁   We had a fab night in House of Plates.

All volunteers and helpers welcome in 2024.

Our Ukrainian friends beautiful evening of Culture

Our lovely Ukrainian friends invited Club members to a beautiful evening of Song, Music and Culture on Sunday Nov 26th at 6.30pm  in Macalla Hall, Lough Lannagh holiday Village.  Our super talented friends put on an excellent show.  And the food after the show was delicious.

Two of our Ukrainian friends, Nadiia and Sveta sang ‘Sé mo Laoch’ – well done girls , ye did a fantastic job.  The ladies song featured on the Connaught Telegraph (local newspaper) facebook page! (see below).
