Sluice/Stackallen Rodeo 15th October 2011

The Club was well represented with Jim, Garven, Bernard, Mairead and Conor at the recent Sluice/Stackallen Rodeo.
Sluice is affectionately known by Irish Paddlers as Dublins Premier Playspot. A stomping ground of Irish paddlers and massive challenge to anyone paddling something skinny. With no rain and the rearranged Liffey Descent unfortunately the ESB could not give a flood on the river meaning no event at Sluice, so the back up plan was made…..
