Unfortunately the Monasterevin to Athy "Fun Paddle" has been postponed for the moment. KACC will inform us once a new date has been decided upon. However, we still have the 10km Circuit Dragonboat Run in Carlow to look forward to, Kathleen is currently taking names for the event which will take place Sunday 24th March. See the updated events page on the website for more details.
We are all so proud here at Suir Dragon Paddlers of our very own Annette Hahessy. Annette is part of the choir named "Sea of Change" that took part in Ireland's Got Talent on Saturday night wowing judges with their inspirational version of "This is me!"
All of the women in the choir have been affected by cancer either directly or through a loved one and their emotional performance last night prompted the judge Denise Van Outen to give them a “golden buzzer” into the live semi-finals.
We can't wait to see more of Annette and Sea of Change in the live semi-finals and we will have our voting fingers at the ready!
Annette you and your lovely friends are an inspiration to women everywhere and we wish you continued success in the competition.
We're in safe hands! Congratulations to our Suir Dragon Paddlers who successfully completed CPR training recently. Thank you to Dolores and Joe who facilitated the training.
World Cancer Day
Bring a friend to Parkrun on the 2nd of February for World Cancer Day. Reduce your risk of cancer and support those living with and beyond cancer for #WorldCancerDay.
In 2018 parkrun Ireland had the highest number of parkrunners of the year on World Cancer Day,
Unfortunately with conditions on the river preventing us getting out to train why not come on down to the Clonmel Racecourse at 9.30am every Saturday to keep up the fitness levels.
