PostSubject: Ennistymon Falls race - Whitewater racing league-RACE 3   Sat 05 Dec 2015, 10:09 pm

Today a few brave souls decided to brave Desmond and head out in search of fulfillment.

We headed to the town of Ennistymon where we planned to rapidly fall down a series of ledges faster than everyone else.

I raced in Junior mens (and came second) and Kevin in senior mens (also came second)

Darragh, Gadget and Ruadhan were also up but i managed to inspire doubt in their minds and they didnt race. Cork was well represented up there

There were some big surfs, big hits and big times and alot of storm

Then to add a twist to the story a local TD, by the name of Timmy Dooley, felt our escapades should not go unfilmed (even though we had gadget and some other professional photographer) this was later posted on his facebook page where it has recieved over 75000 views in 6 hours, it has been shared over 1000 times and covered by JOE.ie (an online news outlet). It has received some critisim from the uninformed public which was hotly defended by the whitewater community. WORTH A WATCH

An absolutely savage day with savage weather

Well done Sean and Kevin and a well done to those who didn't paddle. It is probably the most important skill to master knowing when and when not to paddle. As previously stated the risk to fun factor must always be assessed. Saying that I would love to have chanced it. Timmy Dooley's chances of being re-elected have vastly improved with this amount of exposure lol!
