Plurabelles feature in National Cancer Strategy

Did you see our picture in the National Cancer Strategy? The Strategy – which was formally launched by the Minister for Health on 5th July 2017 – features a photograph of our two boats racing on the Grand Canal Dock. The impressive action shot says more about ‘Life after Cancer’, than any amount of words!

But the Plurabelle Paddlers’ involvement in the Cancer Strategy wasn’t just confined to the photograph. Fiona McEntee – a Plurabelle Paddler and a committee member with Europa Donna Ireland (the breast cancer patient advocacy group) – was a member of the National Cancer Strategy’s Patient Forum. Well done to Fiona and all the paddlers/members of Europa Donna who worked so hard on the development of the Strategy and who spoke so eloquently to the media afterwards on the patient perspective.

  • Two Silvers and a Bronze at the Europeans!

    Well, we may be over our baggage allowance with the weight of the medals we’re bringing back from France!

    A huge congratulations to the Plurabelle Team who competed in the senior category at the European Crew Championships in Divonne Les Bains, France in July.

    Two silver medals (2000m and 500m) and a bronze medal (200m) showed the whole of Europe that a breast cancer diagnosis could possibly be the start of a whole new sporting adventure! We’re so proud of you ladies, and congrats to the Carlow Dragons on their medal successes too! View photos

  • Western Hospitality!

    Thank you to the Grainne Mhaol Dragon Boat Club in Castlebar who were such wonderful hosts to the team of Plurabelles who, at the end of July, travelled west for a bit of a paddle (0k, and a couple of good night’s out too!). Thank you!
