In reaction to the new measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus announced by the government today Canoeing Ireland are extending the cancellation of events and curtailment of all courses and programmes until the end of April.

These new measures include instructions to limit outdoor gatherings to less than four people, with regard to this we would now recommend all members cease any independent activity and stay off the river and in their homes, until government guidelines change. This is for all our safety.

Clubs are still recommended to suspend all activity and encourage their members to do the same.

These new guidelines are in response to the increased threat this virus is posing to our country, weโ€™re all in this together and we can all play our part. Continue to strictly follow hygiene guidelines around handwashing, coughing, and cleaning surfaces, adhere to social distancing guidelines, and whenever possible remain in your homes.

We’ll continue to do our best to keep you fit, healthy and entertained while you continue to stay indoors.

Stay safe
