Last Saturday saw the first ever training session for the Irish Senior Women’s Development Dragon Boat Squad. With representation from most of the IDBA registered clubs the interest across Ireland for this new squad has been well received. Michael Doyle, Coach of the women’s squad was pleased to see that there was some real potential amongst the paddlers. There is obviously a lot of work to do to bring this squad together as a final team of 22 women ready to take on the rest of Europe in 2016, but we believe the group has the hunger to take this on.
