#Kayaking - The Irish Mirror reports on tributes pouring in for the kayaker who died on the River Inchavore in Wicklow last Thursday evening (13 November).

Twenty-one-year-old Shane Murphy from Baldoyle in North Dublin was an experienced kayaker, whose death has "affected the community badly", said neighbour Darragh McGhee.

As previously reported on Afloat.ie, the young man died after he was swept away while kayaking with a group on the river near Lough Dan in the Wicklow Mountains.

The heavy rainfall on the day, which quickly swelled the river's waters, is believed to have contributed to the tragedy.

The man, who has yet been unnamed, was out on the popular kayaking stretch yesterday (13 November) with around six others during heavy rain that quickly swelled the river's waters.

Two other kayakers were airlifted with the casualty to Tallaght Hospital but they are not believed to be injured.
