Liffey Descent and a pleasant afternoon swim

Recently completed the Liffey Descent , a 30km Kayak / Canoe race from Maynooth Ireland to Dublin.

As an aside from the usual IT posts , there are some photos of us coming through the Sluice (where the river narrows to a 4m wide channel), and through a Wier (man made waterfall /dam) at Wren's nest (near Dublins ring road, the M50), complete with Divers to pull you out when you fall in.

I wish that we had heroic tales to report , but we don't. We almost made it without swimming , but if you look closely at this photo you'll see that we're milliseconds away from falling in. Thanks to all the rescue guys who helped us out.
