The results of the selection races at Sluice Weir are attached.
They are arranged by class and show the results and a ranking order, based on those results, for each class. They also highlight those athletes whose performances met the selection criteria on the required two occasions.
Athletes, who did not meet the selection criteria, by achieving the required percentage of the top K1M athlete's time, may still apply for discretionary selection.

Applications for discretionary selection may be provided by email to this address and should be received by Tuesday the 31st of March. Applicants for discretionary selection may quote their times in the selection races as well as any other factors that they consider relevant to their application.
An Athlete Assessment Panel will consider all such applications and advise the Slalom Committee of their views. 

The Committee congratulates those athletes who achieved the selection criteria and who may now be considered provisionally selected to the 2015 team. A contract will be issued shortly and, when this has been signed by both the athlete and Canoeing Ireland, the athlete's selection will be confirmed.

The Committee would also like to express their gratitude to all the athletes, and their families, who contributed to an excellent series of races. There was a significant improvement in standards across all classes and, as a result, the future looks very bright for Irish slalom.

A great opportunity this weekend for fans of Irish Canoeing to see the country’s top Olympic stars, International stars and the stars of the future in action. This and much more will be happening at the Irish Open Canoe Slalom Championships at Sluice Weir, Lucan, County Dublin!

This Saturday and Sunday (March 7th/8th) sees a double-header canoe slalom event at the redeveloped Sluice Weir in the Lucan Demesne / St Catherine’s Park. The events on both days will be used as selection races for senior and junior international teams at the following events:

The Senior European Campionships in Makkleerberg,Germany

The World Cup series in Prague and Krackov in June,Slovenia July,Spain August withthe final race in France in August,

Junior and Under 23 European Campionships in Krackov Poland and the end of August,

Senior World Championships in Lee Valley in September

The World Championships on the London Olympic course – this particular event will also count as the first qualification event for places on the Rio Olympics start line, therefore it has an added importance for our aspiring 2016 Olympians.

Racing on both days will feature London 2012 finalist Hannah Craig, who is making her return to competition following the birth of her son last May. Vying for places in the C1 category will be Liam Jegou who took Silver medal in the C1 class at the Junior World Championships in Australia and Robert Hendrick who took Silver for Ireland in the Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China last year. Robert will also double-up with his brother Noel in the C2 class over the weekend.

To provide a good benchmark to assess performance levels, Canoe Slalom Ireland have brought Mike Kurt (17th in Mens Kayak World Ranking) over from Switzerland. The organisers are also delighted to welcome the talented Welsh Junior / U23 team over for the races which will bring an added level of competition.

On Saturday, racing begins at 11.00 and will be completed by 14.30. The course will then be changed for Sunday’s race (The Irish Open Championships) which commences at 09.30 and will run through till mid-afternoon.  

The sport is currently going through something of a revival due in no small part to the work of volunteer, club paddlers and the many people who will make this weekend happen. A key reason for the current high standard of our Junior / U23 Squad is due to the coaching input of our three-time and most successful Olympian, Eoin Rheinisch. Eoin is guiding a very talented group of young paddlers who are providing the sport with great hopes for future Olympic and International success.

Considerable work has been carried out at the Sluice Weir site since last Summer with the aid of Sports Capital funding from the Department of Tourism, Transport and Sport  and assistance from both South Dublin and Fingal County Councils who operate the parkland (Lucan Demesne / St Catherine’s park) in which the site is located. The rock armour feature which channels the Liffey’s flow to optimise the site’s use for rough water canoeing has been upgraded and extended and a slalom gate hanging system has been installed to facilitate the use of the course for competition and training.

So why not go along and help support the sport to further develop and in turn encourage our many young paddlers who have their eyes on the Olympics in 2016, 2020 and beyond!

Please find attached an application form and an updated information bulletin concerning the selection races that will take place at Sluice Weir on Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of March 2015.
The Committee should be grateful if each athlete, or a parent in the case of athletes who are under 18, would complete and return the application form by email on or before the 17th of February. A hard copy of the application form, which should be signed by the athlete or by a parent in the case of an athlete that is under 18 years of age, should be posted to the office of Canoeing Ireland, together with the application fee of €30, in sufficient time to ensure that it is received by Friday the 20th of February.
This will be the first selection event to take place since the course at Sluice was built and these races will also be the first to benefit from our new electronic timing system. The committee hopes that these developments will add to the enjoyment of all competitors and they will wish every candidate for selection the very best of luck.

Adam Conlan, Secretary
