Strictly DDF and Harps Dancing: Congratulations to all our kayakers who took part in Sundays Nore Basin Peddle and Paddle which took place on November 1st in aid of the Strictly DDF and Harps dancing fundraiser. This event included LKCC kayakers and Durrow High Nellie Cyclists paddling and peddling from Durrow to Ballyragget with a BBQ afterwards in Bob’s bar, it was a very successful event and the great weather and organisation of the event helped to make it run smoothly. There was a lot of fun had by participants of all ages and we look forward to our next event.

Instructors: Congratulations to Fergal Hill and Hannah Rafferty who passed their canoe instructor assessment recently. It’s a great boost to the club, we now have 8 certified instructor’s 4 kayak and 4 canoe (open boat). Well done to both of them.

Interested in Kayaking: with the short evening, kayaking is now only at week-ends, if you are interested in kayaking, please take a look at our Facebook under Laois Kayak and Canoe Club and also check on line on for updates on events and meets.
