Pat Whelehan is the owner of Derrymore Springs water adventure centre. It is situated alongside the river Deel – a tributary of the river Boyne, which is famous for its wild brown trout – and is located five minutes from Kilucan and Kinnegad in Co Westmeath.

Derrymore Springs was originally a farm that was in the Whelehan name for years. Pat reminisces on times gone by when the man-made lake was home to a livestock and tillage farm.
