Weekly Update From Outdoors Ireland

Seems like a while since I've done one of these blog posts! Been getting a bit of extra time off, which has been awesome. Also ticking over with Mountain Skills Training and one Lead Climbing Course.

Had a couple of days in the snow and ice on the MacGillycuddy Reeks; unfortunately however generally when the conditions have been right I have already been booked up with other work.

Looking forward to the first Killarney Lakes Kayak Trip of 2015 tomorrow. Then our first Kinvara Bay Sea Kayak Trip is in about two weeks time - really feels like spring is approaching.

First Aid Training - Remote West First Aid

First Aid Level 3 is the requirement for outdoor instructors and guides and this course is valid for three years.

However we repeat our First Aid Level 3 each year, in the spring.





The scheme we complete is Remote Emergency Care Level 3.

Marie Lyons from Remote West First Aid runs our training and she is excellent! Her website is www.remotewestfirstaid.com.

I highly recommend her if you are looking for a first aid course; especially if you are progressing through the Mountain Skills, Rock Climb Skills or Kayak Skills awards.
