Daniel stars at kayak All-Irelands
THE Lacken Kayak Club had an enjoyable and productive day at the Canoeing Ireland Club Championship in Kilkenny recently. The team included Daniel Flanagan who competed in the under-16 section despite being only 10 years old himself. Daniel competed in the Freestyle and Boater and was also a member of the club’s Pol team.
At the championships weekend Lacken Kayak Club were represented by Eimear Hoey, Orlagh Deegan, Mark Stanley (10), Daniels Kurilovs, Daniel Flanagan, David Flanagan, James Walsh, and Lisa O'Neil in Polo, Marathon, Freestyle and Boater.
LKC were recognised as a club who support and promote junior paddlers and won six new helmets. The weekend was very successful and they’ll certainly be back next year to take home some medals.
