Meelick-Eyrecourt Kayak Club is based on the mid-Shannon at Meelick Weir (and quay), Co. Galway. The club was recently founded in mid-2016, and has already built up a solid base of new members, as well as having some more experienced ones. The club serves the wider mid-shannon region, from Portumna and Loughrea, to Birr, and Ballinasloe, though we have members from a wider catchment.

The aim of the club is simple: To promote and increase participation in paddle sports, and increase general use of the waterways as a public amenity.

We are a non-profit club run by volunteers. The club is currently fundraising to buy equipment to train beginners, and keep the intermediate/advanced paddlers involved. So far we have received great support from local community and we are grateful for that. However, we are far from finished.  We currently don’t have a clubhouse, but instead we just meet at the river.

Have a look around our website. It is still being constructed, so there’s plenty more to come. Feel free to send us any suggestions for the website (and the club).
