Re: Canoeing Ireland 101

OK, don't all rush to answer :-p In the absence of other more neutral voices, I'll try to answer. Unlike two years ago CI as an entity doesn't have any actually material problems right now. It has a functioning board, money and no significant legal issues (that I'm aware of). To understand what happ...

Re: Resignation of President and Executive of Canoeing Irela

And Canoe Ireland now operates on a one person one vote system. Technically correct. But an entire room of people can be (and have been) out voted by one person utilizing some of the perfectly allowable voting loopholes that the ICU has: - Educational/training organizations to vote on behalf of a c...

Re: Resignation of President and Executive of Canoeing Irela

The word used and the way it was used can have a wide interpretation. For the sake of the ongoing discussion and fairness to all the people who sit on the ICU board lets either just avoid this semantics/name calling issue or substantiate claims. My preference is that we simply move past this, the pe...

Video: Honey Pot Incident

When doing my SRT in Canada we were told that firefighters were called to a drowning, when a guy fell through some ice trying to rescue a dog. Soon one of the fire fighters fell through the ice trying to rescue the guy, then another fire fire fighter fell in trying to rescue him. I'd always thought ...

Re: Resignation of President and Executive of Canoeing Irela

The TDU AGM will be on February 16th. I would feel that is the most appropriate place to discuss views and the way forward. The membership can then decide what should be done. I respectfully disagree. Meetings are good for seeking consensus and democratic decision making. However, if people leave d...

Re: ICU/ Canoeing Ireland – Board Statement Dec 2012

Well, I got a lot of email and PM's. Most people are afraid of being sued if they speak their minds. It's a sad state of affairs. Two new Directors of the company were appointed. The former President removed his name as a director from the company register. Brendan O'Brien is the new Irish Canoe Uni...

Re: ICU/ Canoeing Ireland – Board Statement Dec 2012

While this was expected, I would like to highlight some things: 1). The statement isn't signed by anyone. 2). We have no idea who's still on the board and what positions they hold. 3). In the interim the Board, will take responsibility for the continued operation of Canoeing Ireland, operating withi...
