Sligo is the #AdventureCapital


Firstly before I get to the point of this blog post I need help please. I’m working on a new project but need to go out kayaking, boating, stand up paddling, surfing etc. in Sligo, Mayo, Leitrim and Donegal. I have no budget (The Story of My Life as the One Direction song goes) but you will get blogged about (the blog gets hundreds of readers every day) and you will get mentioned at my project opening. I did ask on twitter and the silence was deafening, so if you can help drop me an email
