Holyhead men paddle kayak to Greystones

On Thursday 2 Holyhead men paddled their kayaks to Greystones, starting at 4am and arriving at Greystones Harbour Marina at 9 pm. The Irish Sea Charity Paddle was in aid of a Cancer Unit and a mental health charity in North Wales.

Andy Smith and Steve Miles were welcomed by Kathleen Kelleher, Cllr. Derek Mitchell and a very welcome pint of Guinness. These had to be takeaway as with Covid restrictions they could tie up but not land. They were accompanied by a sailing boat from Holyhead Sailing Club which loaded up the kayaks  and sailed back that night.

Cllr Derek Mitchell said ‘This was a great achievement and it was sad that they were not able to land and we were not able to have a proper welcome. They had hoped to do this in 2020 but health restrictions delayed it.’

Any donation would be gratefully accepted.
