Welcome to the Irish Dragon Boat Association’s website.
This is now our sixth year of formal operation as the Governing Body of the sport here in Ireland. Year on year we are growing in strength and skills as the number of Clubs and people participating in dragon boating expands. 2016 is an exciting year as it will be the first time we have had a selected national team that will compete in the 12th EDBF European Nations Championships. Of course we will have the 6th Dublin International Dragon Boat Regatta, which is becoming the one event to attend in the international calendar.
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
