If you would like to give it a try please contact us. You do not need to buy any stuff right away, we can teach you with our training equipment until you decide if archery is for you. We can help you decide which equipment to buy if you decide to continue. If you have your own bow already we will gladly teach you how to use it.
All you need is a pair of boots or wellies and clothes you don't mind getting dirty as it can get a little muddy in the woods.
And tight clothing is preferable as it will not impair the shooting.
After a few weeks you should purchase a few arrows (to match your personal draw-length) and possibly a quiver and shooting glove, within a couple of months you should invest in a bow and we'll be happy to give you advice on any type of bows.
After a couple of training sessions you will be asked to join the club which will include membership of SIFA. This will allow you to take part in any of the competitions put on by other clubs throughout the year.
Children from around 7 are welcome but they must be accompanied by an adult, so parents can bring them along and have a go as well.
The club follows the guidelines for Children In Sport as laid down by The Sports Council and the Health Service Executive and has a qualified Child Protection Officer on it's committee.
