Waterways Ireland Event Sponsorship Programme Opens

31st October 2013
Waterways Ireland Event Sponsorship Programme Opens

#Waterways - Waterways Ireland has opened its 2014 Sponsorship Programme for events on major inland waterways throughout the island of Ireland.

The programme is designed to support events taking place along the Lower Bann Navigation, the Erne System, the Shannon-Erne Waterway, the Shannon Navigation, the Barrow Navigation, the Grand Canal and the Royal Canal.

Taking place annually for the past eight years, the Waterways Ireland Sponsorship Programme has supported angling, canoeing, rowing, sailing and power-sports; competitions, learning experiences, historical and educational activities.

“Communities, clubs and associations in towns and villages, along rural waterways and in waterside urban centres, have participated in small and large events," says Éanna Rowe, head of marketing and communications with Waterways Ireland. "Huge numbers of people have been encouraged to experience something new about the waterways.

"The myriad events supported by Waterways Ireland play a significant role from both an economic and social standpoint in underpinning and supporting the waterway communities and recreational activity along Ireland’s inland waterways."

Applications are open to anyone wishing to run recreational waterway and waterside events. The application pack can be downloaded from the Waterways Ireland website HERE or is available by post by contacting Damien McWeeney at [email protected] or 071 96 50787.

The closing date for the receipt of completed applications is 4 December 2013 at 3pm. Terms and conditions apply.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
