About us

Meet team Raging Kayak! We are from Portlaoise!

Hi! I'm the team captain Matt McGrath.
I'm a welder fabricator & kayak instructor. I love all water sports from canoe marathon race's to white water kayaking. I think we will do well because the Soapbox has a good design it will have a low center of gravity and it will be tough and well built.

James and Annemarie are my brother and sister, Eoin is Annemarie's boyfriend & Brian is one of the guy's i regularly kayak with.

Brian is the other kayaker on the team. He project manager for inspire based at Carlow it. Brian loves marathon racing.

James is a carpenter, he's up for anything. James is new to kayaking but very keen. He also like soccer.

Annemarie is an accountant who loves playing bingo and mad for a bit fun. Only learning to drive at the moment, we won't give her the wheel just yet !

Eoin is Annemarie's boyfriend. He is an app developer and a keen astronomer (or at least that's what he said when asked about having a telescope in the middle of Dublin)
