Cianne was passionate about wakeboarding and about life. Having taken up wakeboarding at an early age she went on to win the ‘Open Women Division’ of the Irish National Championships in 2009 and subsequently competed on the Irish National Team in both European and World Championships.
Sadly, in January 2013, Cianne lost her life to Cystic Fibrosis at the age of only 21. In her honour, Cianne’s family presented a perpetual trophy to the IWWF to be awarded annually to the best up and coming female wakeboarder or water-skier under the age of 21.
The best tribute to Cianne is from her closest friend and professional wakeboarder, Nicola Butler, who describes Cianne and her passions far better than any attempt we might make. See below.
