Early set back for Bawnboy man kayaking The Shannon

James Brady from Bawnboy is continuing his fundraiser for the Jampa Ling Meditation Centre despite an early set back.

James set off yesterday from the Shannon Pot in Cavan to begin his 2 week kayaking challenge to the Shannon Estuary in Limerick, all in aid of the Jampa Ling Tibetan Meditation Centre.
