This year’s chosen charity for our fundraising is TASC Madagascar because it’s one that was close to the heart of our late and great friend Niall O Broin.

Your support is really appreciated and it would be great to see as many of you as possible  there on the night

Results from Junior and Under 23 Canoe Slalom Championships

The Irish Junior C2 crew of twin brothers Noel and Robert Hendrick narrowly missed a podium finish today when they placed fourth behind the French, Czech and German pairings in the final of the Junior / U23 World Championships in Foz do Iguassu, Brazil. This was a great result for the crew from Ribbontail Canoe Club in Enfield and their best performance ever at this level of competition. They were the last of the Irish participants in the Championships which were held over the past three days and which produced semi-final placings for Irish team members in C1 Men U23 (Jake Cochrane), C1 Junior (Robert Hendrick), K1 Women U23 (Aisling Conlan) and K1 Men Junior (Noel Hendrick). The Hendrick brothers will hope to go at least one place better when they face these crews again in the Junior Europeans in Krakow, Poland next August.
