Members of the Kilcullen Canoeing Club, celebrated the lifting of Covid restrictions from 6am yesterday, by taking to the waters and the wild today, to make the trip on the River Liffey, from their clubhouse in Kilcullen, County Kildare to the Millers Weir Bridge in the hamlet of Blackrath and Athgarvan, a journey of over 5km, due to the winding nature of the river. The photos shows members waiting their turn to come ashore after arriving at the bridge in Blackrath and Athgarvan.
