Re: Serious threat to the Clare River, Tuam Galway

Lost Paddle on Clare Glens

A friend lost his paddle today at sidewinder. He would really appreciate them back. They were black carbon lightening paddles.

Please let me know if they are found.

Re: GalwayFest-2012

Freestyle/WW scores will be linked to crown an overall champion and to give many others an insight on how their own paddling is coming on.

Seanafaurrachain River/ Little Norway

Re: Boluisce tommorow ?

Was out there today. Wasn't paddling, but the river was still up, albeit at a lowish level.
