We have a fantastic new addition to the team in Steve Fahy. Steve is coming on board as our new Development Officer, with a focus on strengthening the capacity of our clubs, and administering the Canoeing Ireland Coaching and Instructing schemes.
Steve comes from a long career in paddlesports and the outdoors, with 25 years experience as a outdoor instructor, 23 of those as a Canoeing Ireland instructor. For the last 14 years Steve has been doing brilliant work as an Youth worker, with a focus on outdoor therapeutic education.
As development officer Steve will be working closely with a variety of stakeholders, including clubs and providers, to increase our offering as a sport, and to increase the quality of paddlesports instruction around the country. You’ll be seeing Steve out on the water soon.
