A video clip of youths wakeboarding on the Grand Canal on Ireland's inland waterways while being towed behind a car on the tow path has drawn the ire of water safety experts who say the actions are 'foolhardy' and 'irresponsible'. The youtube stunt is below with comments from viewers that includes one from a David Kilty who says: 'Good stuff lads at least someone is making use of our waterways'. The video has been forwarded to the Inspector of Navigation as Lt Cdr John Leech of Irish Water Safety believes the activity is in breach of the Grand Canal Act.
