Canoeing trip to Lismore
As part of their Leisure and Recreation Course, our 6th Year Leaving Cert Applied students ventured out to Lismore on Monday 14th May. They canoed the meandering and fast running stretch of the Blackwater water to Cappoquin in a record time of one and a half hours.
The 2 man Canadian canoes were tricky to handle as Peter and Karl found out as they bravely set off first and headed straight for the trees on the opposite bank. A tough first leg upstream to the castle was won by Mr. Coles and Shannon O’Sullivan.
Sinead McCarthy and Martin Foley brought up the rear with Sinead’s paddle looking suspiciously dry at the finish.
Big thanks to Mr. Coles and Ms. Dahill who assisted on the trip and to Dennis Murray and Mick who looked after us for the day. A great time was had by all and we will see you again in the future lads……..
