Canoeing Ireland are excited to announce an increase in Women in Sport funding for 2021/2022. We thank Sport Ireland for allocating €100,000 to continue developing our women in sport initiative Bridge the Gap. This initiative aims to achieve gender equity across all levels of paddlesports by addressing key areas:

  • Regular Participation
  • Leadership & Governance
  • Coaching & Officiating
  • Visibility – online and on the water

We have seen many successes resulting from Bridge the Gap over the previous two years and are confident that we will see many more. Well done to all who have helped us to come this far, and a special thanks to all Bridge the Gap Ambassadors who have been enthusiastically developing women in sport opportunities throughout the country over the past two years!
