Description

All welcome who are interested in boating, angling, wild-fowling, botany, countryside preservation, or just fun!

Take a journey along the Bann, the longest river in Northern Ireland. Wonderful scenery on a sunny day shot from a moving boat feels almost like a first-hand experience. Keep your map handy and explore Northern Ireland's history through its landscape. Watch out for an amazing stunt involving water-skis and a chair! The journey ends as the clouds and dramatic rough sea signal a gathering storm.
