On Thursday 12th August 2021 Carlow Sports Partnership ran the first of our #HEROutdoors week programmes.

This event saw 20 women take on a 16km kayaking trip from Goresbridge to Graiguenamangh. This trip involved several weirs, some loughs and a beautiful picnic beneath the breath-taking spectacle that is Borris House. It was a hugely enjoyable experience as most of the participants had never been on a kayak before, the age demographic ranged from women in their early twenties to retirement age.

The staff of Pure Adventure, the providers of the trip, adapted to and encouraged each participant and have encouraged us all to #FindYourOutdoors.
