Dear Members,

I hope that you and your families are keeping well during these extraordinary and unprecedented times.  I would like to especially acknowledge the dedication and commitment of our staff, committees and volunteers who continue to work albeit from their homes to keep Canoeing Ireland running as close to normality as is feasibly possible.

Scientific and public health advice is telling us that it may be some time before COVID-19 can be contained. In consideration of this and the restrictions necessitated to contain the pandemic, the Board of Canoeing Ireland has decided to postpone the 59th Annual General Meeting scheduled for the end of April until a future date. We continue to review this situation in light of company and constitutional obligations. Contingency plans are also being developed to hold the AGM through alternative and compliant channels even if current constraints are still in place.

Canoeing Ireland asks all the paddling community to continue to adhere to published health advice, but most of all, please stay safe.

Yours sincerely,

Brian Ogilvie


Canoeing Ireland
