Re: New TDU Newsletter

Without wishing to get involved in the internal politics of the ICU, I would just like to point out that Kevin O Callaghan is one of the most experienced and respected outdoor educators in Ireland. He has been elected by the instructorship body of the ICU to help implement changes to the current pro...

Re: TDU Training provision in the Future– have your say

Just had a quick look at this. Fantastic, finally a logical and fair method of training provision in Ireland. Great work by all in the TDU
And thanks to Benny for all his hard work over the past few years without whose hard work over the past few years this system could not have been implemented.

Re: Regulation of Kayaking and Canoeing in Ireland

Personally I am against any attempt to bring about government regulation of the outdoor industry. As we all know our hugely competent government has not covered itself in glory in other areas, so why should we involve another layer of bureaucrats who know nothing about our sport? Government regulati...

The big question is if you can find enough work to make livi...

Re: urband adventure

The Dodder is a nice little run if you are looking for something different from the Liffey. Myself and Nick and the boys used to paddle it a lot. In fact it was the only river we paddled for quite a long time. Get in at Templeogue Bridge and get out in Ballsbridge. I think there are some big weirs o...
