Jennifer’s aim is to promote participation in the sport of  stand up paddle boarding and to build  knowledge and water skills in a fun and safe environment. She is very passionate about the sport and teaches stand up paddle boarding (SUP) in Holywood and along the North Coast of Ireland. It is great exercise for balance, core strength and fitness it is a fun and different way to explore the coast.

Raising £3,000 for Ailish’s cancer treatments.


Ailish needs a miracle to help her beat cancer. She is a single mum to her 11 year old daughter Sophia, they moved back home to Ireland a few weeks ago from America. Coping with cancer treatments and Covid 19 has been a challenge in itself.

I am going to Paddleboard from ROI TO NI along the North Coast of Ireland to raise money to help my dear friend Ailish pay for her cancer treatments. As she battles for her life I will I endeavour to 21 miles around 35 kilometres on my Stand Up Paddle Board in one day out in the cold North Sea, this is a tricky and dangerous coastline…I will have to paddle from Donegal across Lough Foyle with its notoriously strong currents. Avoid being shot at as I pass Magilligan firing range. Paddle the long stretch of coastline along Benone Beach, Downhill Beach, Mussendon and cross the mouth of the River Ban. I will continue to paddle from Portstewart to Portrush and around Ramore Head. From here pass the Skerries, Dunluce Castle and finish up fingerscrossed in Portballintrae. All of this will rely a lot on timing, skill, sweat and possibly tears.

Please donate if you can, and please send prayers, love and light her way.

Spring 2014 Jennifer paddled 75 miles from Portballintrae to Bangor in 3 days and raised £3000.00 for her cousins cancer treatment and Marie Curie. This is the next stage of her paddle challenge which is from Belfast to Dublin. She is doing this differently and allow other people to join in too.

Belfast to Strangford will be broken into 2-5km distances for training purposes and hoping too have it all covered by Christmas 2019.

Strangford to Carlingford will be covered in a few days perhaps a weekend around April/March 2020. Now the long distance paddles really start.

The last stretch from Carlingford to Dublin June 2020 this will be a real taste of endurance.

If anyone wants to join in please call me 07805297728 and go to my Stand Up Paddle Bangor to Dublin Page on face book  and see the dates and times for each step of the way. Hopefully the training times suit if not pick a time that suits you and post some photos of yourself on route.

Please ask your family and friends to sponsor you and post comments and photos about your paddle board experience.
