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.

  • It’s in the black bag!

    A mountain of black bags (view pics) were collected from the clubhouse (October 2017) as Plurabelle Paddlers (& friends) cleared out their wardrobes in aid of the Plurabelle team heading to the IBPCP regatta in Florence in 2018.  Well done to Mairead, and to the many helpers/ collectors. Guess you’ll just have to go shopping now to fill in the gaps in your wardrobe!
