Quoile River Recreational Paddle – Saturday 6th October 2018

Meet and Trip Plan:
We will meet on Saturday 6th October at Jane’s Shore for 10.00am start and will finish back at Jane’s Shore for 3.00pm.  The day’s paddle will be relaxed, with a few breaks and pleasant lunch stop in the middle, so please bring a lunch along with you.

All paddles are subject to weather conditions.

Venue Description:
The Quoile begins its life as the Ballynahinch River, which is very small and not ideal for paddling, then becomes the Annacloy River, which is an excellent white water paddle from Mason’s Bridge to Kilmore. From Kilmore to Annacloy is mostly flat water with a few weirs. The River is generally known as the Quoile from Annacloy down through Downpatrick to the Barrage where it flows into Strangford Lough. This section of the river is completely flat. From Jane’s Shore is a beautiful paddle up past Inch Abbey. The river is surrounded by woodland and arable land and has huge populations of waterfowl and swans.
