Welcome to the Irish Dragon Boat Association’s website.
In the early part of 2013 we were busy developing and running new courses and workshops that will raise the standard of dragon boating here in Ireland. We have also been working on some new promotional material, plus spreading the word on our schools dragon boat programme and the sport in general.
As predicted, the year to date has been our biggest year yet. We now have 6 clubs based around the country and are in talks with developing more, plus our membership has grown by 50%.
Through the use of this website, our Facebook page and Twitter account we aspire to provide you with the latest and most up to date information on dragon boating.
I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to you & your staff for your support & dedication during the preparation & delivery of the 2013 World Police & Fire Games. The Belfast Games were a huge success thanks to your professionalism & attention to detail.John Tully - Chief Executive,
The Athy Dragon Boat Regatta was a fantastic event, extremely well organised & was most enjoyable. We found the organisers very cooperative & flexible & both Athy Town Council & Kildare County Council are very much looking forward to hosting them again in the future. It certainly put Athy & our water on the map.Patricia Berry, Project Outdoor Tourism
