Canoeing Ireland's recent come-and-try kayak day for potential Special Olympians was a success all round, according to organisers.
Hoping to emulate the success of kayakers at the recent Special Olympics Summer Games in Athens, newcomers at the Irish Canoe Union Training Centre at Strawberry Beds were kitted out with paddles, kayaks, helmets, wetsuits and flotation devices before getting to know their kayaks, learning how to paddle and playing some on-water games.
The organisers added: "By the time the athletes were ready to go home they were all tired but asking when the next session would be!"
The Special Olympics website has some photos of the day are available HERE.
