#Canoeing: Canoeing Ireland has appointed Karl Dunne as its new chief executive. Dunne has been the general manager of the body since March 2012. The recruitment process for the new post was, according to Canoeing Ireland, undertaken by independent HR Consultants as part of an organisational restructuring programme.

 Paul Donnelly, the president of Canoeing Ireland, said: “I am pleased that this important position of CEO of Canoeing Ireland has been filled. One of the CEO’s first tasks will be to finalise the development and implementation of a new Strategic Plan for the organisation to guide its development and expansion into the future. The Board look forward to working in cooperation with the CEO and his dedicated staff in meeting the challenges and opportunities which lie ahead.”

Dunne said: “It is an honour to be appointed to the role of CEO with Canoeing Ireland. Canoeing in Ireland has a proud history of both performance and participation and I look forward to working with the board and staff of the organisation and our partner agencies for the benefit of our members. Canoeing is a fantastic community sport that is very accessible. It is my priority to grow participation levels in the sport across the country.”

 Canoeing Ireland is the governing body for the 70 affiliated clubs in the Republic of Ireland.

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.
