PostSubject: River Roughty Tragedy 4th Nov 2018 - RIP   Tue 06 Nov 2018, 12:07 pm

Dear Members,

Last Sunday 4th November 2018 a group of experienced kayakers comprising current and previous members of PKC arrived at the Roughty River, Kilgarvan, Co Kerry. Conditions were good, the river was not in flood and preceded by another group they paddled the river without issue until nearing the get-out when an incident occurred.

Words cannot express our shock and sadness in having to inform our members that as a result of that incident we lost one of our own; Brita Waters.

Brita was a member of Phoenix and Lir Canoe Club Dublin and kayaked extensively at home and abroad. She had recently moved to Cork; Brita and partner Martin Tarrant (ex Club Secretary) had planned to marry next year. We offer our condolences to Martin, their family and friends and also our thoughts to those kayaking with her on Sunday last.

The clubhouse will be open on Friday 9th November 4:30 to 9pm for those wishing to sign a book of condolence. May she rest in peace.

The club will provide help to those affected by this tragedy, please donít hesitate to contact the Committee if you need support.

Funeral Arrangements:
Reposing at The Kiely Funeral Home, Wolfe Tone Road, Dungarvan X35 XN79, Wednesday 7th November 5 p.m, Rosary at 7.30 p.m. Removal Thursday 8th November 10.15 a.m. to St. Augustine's Church, Abbeyside for Requiem Mass at 11 a.m. Internment afterwards in the adjoining cemetery. Family flowers only please, donations, if desired, to a charity of your choice.

Note: Because an accident investigation is ongoing, the club will not be releasing any further details of this tragedy at this time.
