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 .

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

The club is currently fundraising to buy equipment to train beginners, and keep the intermediate paddlers involved. As the club is new, we are starting completely from scratch, and any equipment we currently use is either privately owned, is on loan or has been donated.  We currently don’t have a clubhouse.

Have a look around our website. It is still being constructed, so there’s plenty more to come.
