This competition is now finished as Athy Rowing & Canoeing (ARC) club have been selected as winners.

If you want to be kept informed about future Promotions and competitions then sign up for our free newsletter at the ‘Subscribe to our newsletter’ section at the foot of the page.

A large number of applications were received from all sectors of the community but ARC was unanimously picked by our judging panel.

What’s On Athy caught up with Chairman of ARC, Clifford Reid, upon receiving the news.

“We are extremely delighted that our application was selected. The website will open up a whole new avenue for us in terms of promoting not only our club but also advocating the use of Athy’s unique waterways system.

We established the club back in June and since then membership has exploded.
The website will further help us to develop and grow our organisation.

We now have over 60 members participating in the many various disciplines of Rowing or Canoeing and the Club continues to grow rapidly.

The Website will aid us greatly in attracting new members and help highlight what Athy has to offer in terms of outdoor pursuits and water based activities”.

Since its inception, ARC has placed a strong emphasis on safety, training and personal development. Currently, 16 members are training to receive their Level 3 Canoe Skills qualification with the assistance of Outdoor Tourism and Go With The Flow River Adventures.

“I’d like to thank Patricia Berry and the team in Outdoor Tourism for their help over the past few months.

Our club is not just about getting people on the water and having fun.

It is also involves providing people with technical skills, physical training and personal development.

Patricia and the team have recognised this and have been extremely helpful in assisting us”.

“By next summer we hope to have several of our members gaining a recognised Canoeing Instructor qualification from Canoeing Ireland.

This will not only be highly beneficial to our club but be of great benefit to them in their personal lives.

It will open up employment opportunities for them with the many Outdoor Adventure companies and centres spread throughout the country”.

Mr Reid continued to explain that the club also currently has members pursuing qualifications as Lifeguards and that a Kayaking skills course is commencing in December.

This will then be followed by a Sports First Aid course expected in the new year.

If you are interested in joining Athy Rowing & Canoeing, the club trains 3 times a week.

This consists of Saturday morning on the River at the Boat Slip form 10 am and two week-night sessions in the Gym and Pool.

“The Club is currently open to over 18’s only but it is hoped to extend this to under-age next summer when we have enough qualified people to facilitate it”.

Those interested in joining the can contact Cliff Reid on 087 206 1999 for more information.

Their club website is expected to be up and running within the coming weeks and we would like to wish Athy Rowing & Canoeing the very best for the future and congratulations once more from What’s On Athy.
