A great way to get active and fit after breast cancer!
A sport that orginated in China, dragon boating is a good upper-body exercise that can be taken up at any age. All our members were new to the sport.
Come and Try
With members of all levels of fitness, none of whom had ever been in a dragon boat, you are welcome to come and try throughout the year. The only criteria is that you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and be at least 3 months post-treatment.
If you'd like to try dragon boating, just email our new member coordinator Ann .
July 2020: We are currently not training in dragon boats due to Covid-19
Who we are
The Plurabelle Paddlers is a breast cancer dragon boat club and registered charity, based in Grand Canal Dock in Dublin and was founded in 2010 by Fiona Tiernan.
After treatment for a recurrence of breast cancer, Fiona decided to manage her health by getting fit. She was inspired by the breast cancer dragon boat movement first pioneered in Canada 15 years earlier.
