Story

Galway Fest is an Irish kayak festival ran over three days, on three different rivers across Galway, attracting kayakers from all over the world. This year the event will run from the 10th -12th March.
Each year we run a fundraiser alongside the event to give back to communities that provide so much to us as an Irish Kayaking community.

On the 29th of December 2022 the Galway Kayaking Community lost an exceptionally bright light and avid kayaker on our home river the Boluisce, Spideal. Mark Morley was a much-loved member of the NUIG Kayak Club as well as the Galway Kayak Club. He is fondly remembered for his infectious smile and positivity both on and off the water. He will be greatly missed but the memories that he left behind will never be forgotten.

As part of Galway Fest this year we will be raising funds
for the RNLI who were there for this community in its time of need. We are forever grateful to have their continued support for the Irish community.

Any donations would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to be included in the raffle (for something very exciting!!) please make sure to add your name and contact information to the donation. (To receive the prizes you will need to attend the Galway Fest prize giving at NUIG on Sunday the 12th of March, 16:00)
