Pool Sessions: Pool sessions will be starting soon in conjunction with Balto canoeing club, please keep an eye on our Facebook and viber to get details on same.
Crayfish: There have been a number of outbreaks of crayfish plagues this summer, this is a disease that kills Irish crayfish. We are advising kayakers to follow these instructions if paddling the following rivers; the River Barrow, the River Suir and the River Deel. If these are your local rivers, please follow these guidelines before travelling to other water courses. Following each trip, all paddle sports equipment should be routinely inspected, disinfected and thoroughly dried out. Drain water from watercraft and inspect inside and out and all other gear. Remove and safely dispose of all attached plant and animal material, mud or debris. Full details are in the club house and on our Facebook page here.
Interested in Paddling: We are founded and based in Durrow and have a huge commitment to encouraging our youth to participate. Follow us on Facebook under Laois Kayak and Canoe Club or on our website online here.
