26 June 2010, SHARE, Upper Lough Erne, Fermanagh

She Shoots for Share Centre

On 26 June, Ulster Sea Kayaker, Elaine Alexander (aka Shooter) embarks on a journey to circumnavigate Ulster from SHARE via the Erne/Shannon link to Ballyshannon where she leaves the shelter of the inland waterways to brave the rolling seas. Paddling around the West, North and East Coast, Shooter will finally come back to the sheltered inland waters via the Fane River below Dundalk bay before starting the homeward leg through Monaghan (where she grew up) and back to SHARE. The paddle is expected to take three weeks and forms part of Elaine's training for her 2011 goal to complete the 1000 mile clockwise circumnavigation of Ireland as a fundraiser for SHARE whose leisure suite was ruined by a flood last year.

If you are interested in following Shooter’s Challenge you can join her facebook group: 'Canoe Around Ireland' which will have regular updates on her progress as well as blogs for each day and photos and video footage en route...”
