#Kayaking - A trio of intrepid kayakers have reached Carrick-on-Shannon this afternoon (Thursday 16 June) on the second day of their long-distance charity paddle along length of the Shannon from Lough Erne to Killaloe.

Ger Harrington, Peter Brewitt and James Lynch hope to complete the 220km challenge by this Sunday 19 June in aid of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association, as the Clare Herald reports.

All three are experienced on the water, Harrington and Brewitt being longtime kayakers and Lynch being the first person to swim in the length of Lough Derg two years ago.

The team are posting regular updates on their journey on their Facebook page while raising funds for the charity that helped Harrington's late mother in her final months in 2012.
