Canoeing - Ireland Development Squad

Well done to Grosvenor canoeist Alistair McCreery who was recently selected as a member of the Ireland Development Squad at Under 16 level. 

Form four pupil Alistair, a member of Lisburn canoeing Club, has enjoyed sustained success of late, including achieving first place in the Senior and Under 16 categories at the 'Mourne Race' in Tyrone just last month. 

The Irish Development squad features twenty elite canoeists from throughout Ireland and meets in Dublin every other weekend throughout the winter.  Alistair’s training in such an elite environment will help him in his preparation for the ‘Pan-Celtic’ competition for which he has been selected, which will be held in Wales at Easter.

Congratulations to Alistair on all of his recent successes and we wish him well in his various competitions over the coming months.
