Eye Feel Good Canoe Training Weekend

The Eye Feel Good training weekend took place at the Lough Shore on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March.

The training was to prepare the expedition team for the arduous 3 day trip from Antrim to Castlerock which begins in Antrim on the 14th April.  Those taking part in the trip are aiming to raise funds for local cancer charity Eye Feel Good who raised over £15, 000 during their first 18 months of fundraising from October 2009.

An Eye Feel Good spokesperson said “The weekend we had a the lough characterises so much that is good about the people of Antrim.  Good weather comes to good people and we had it this weekend.”


“We have people of all ages and backgrounds taking part in the trip this year.  They are all united by a common cause and that is to raise money for charity.  They are bonded by a common goal and that is to paddle under their own steam from Antrim to Castlerock.”
