'Kerry's Explore our Waterways - Women on the Water' has been made possible by Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership collaborating with our the Kerry Canoe Club, Killorglin and with key partners including Cappanalea NCOET and Canoeing Ireland.

The aim of this programme is to introduce women to kayaking or paddle sports as means of participating in sport or physical activity.

It also looks to create a pathway to introduce women to the outdoors and to promote our abundance of waterways for sport and recreational purposes. Fun and social engagement will be key elements throughout the programme.

The programme will be rolled out over 5 weeks, with site visits to various venues, finishing with a final day event - 'National Paddling Day' in collaboration with Canoeing Ireland.

We are delighted that Colette Lawlor, Kerry's Canoeing Ireland local ambassador for Women in Sport will be in attendance to share her knowledge and skills with participants.
