Date for your Diary. 24th June 2017 – Summer Solstice Celebrations.
Meet in the Bush Hotel Friday 23rd June for registration.
We intend to travel to Lough Key and moor out overnight (weather permitting) in Erris Bay.
Get to know your neighbour, and if you have not “hung on the hook” before, now is your chance to experience it in the company of friends old and new. If the weather is on our side, this promises to be a magical evening.
Note: For this year, the Solstice Celebrations replaces the normal June CiC, at the request of some members who would like to support and attend the Carrick Carnival on the June Bank Holiday Weekend.
The Branch is proud to announce the arrival of its brand new trailer, which will be used for the storage of various pieces of equipment including the Kayaks. The trailer will be stored locally in Carrick-on-Shannon, where access will be available to members. Watch this space for further details once it has been fitted out and secured. Happy Birthday Trailer! See some photos in the link below.
Below is the link to a great article in the Leitrim Observer on how the IWAI Carrick Branch has made our wonderful waterways accessible to all via the very successful Carrick Cares Day. This in no small part is due to the wonderful efforts of our members and the volunteers who made it happen.
Please note a change of date due to a clash with a lesser sporting event taking place in Croke Park on the 1st! New date is 8th October, same time (6pm) in the Bowling Centre in Carrick.
Below is a link to the Draft Flood Risk Management Plan for both the lower and upper Shannon as highlighted at last week-ends Branch meeting.
