There was once a man that said ‘If you love what you do, you will never have to work a day in your life’..
I have always had an intense desire for that life.
I am Becky the founder of Lough Derg Water Sports, a small kayaking business based in the heartlands of Ireland, which was started in 2013.
Just a girl from Liverpool with a soft spot for water. I love travel, experiencing cultures, exploring lands, forests and oceans, meeting the special creatures of the world and its people!
I am a mother of 3 beautiful cherubs who keep me on my toes and addicted to coffee.
Lough Derg full of mystery, unspoiled nature and a playground for us to explore.
