WW Kayaking in Ireland

Fortunately I have been able to make the most of the recent rain with a kayak trip to the southwest of Ireland. Over four days we paddled 10 different rivers that ranged from grade III to V in full flood! Highlights include the middle Flesk, a gorge with numerous rocky drops, Gaddah, high mountain spate run with continuous grade 4 and the Roughty, a mix of open grade III rapids to tight grade V drops.
All this with no access trouble, in fact the locals were all friendly and happy!
