CI Olympic Commemoration

A fantastic night was held in Finnstown House on Friday 16th January to mark the retirement of Eoin Rheinisch from international canoe slalom and to honour him as our most successful Olympian.  The event also honoured all of Canoeing Ireland’s past Olympians since Canoeing was first introduced to the Olympics in 1972.
