The Inny Kayak club was founded in 1992. It developed from the Longford Kayak Club which had declined to an extent that it no longer existed as a club. This led to the setting up of the present club in Ballymahon.
Based in Ballymahon, Co Longford,on the River Inny, Inny Kayakers are drawn from a large catchment of local paddlers. The Inny provides a 4km stretch of prime paddling real estate with rapids containing some pour-overs, stoppers, holes and standing waves. It is the only stretch of water of this type in the midlands area. It provides the perfect run for beginners and experienced paddlers alike.
The Inny Kayakers Association pride themselves on promoting safe paddling in line with the governing body, the Irish Canoe Union (ICU) safety guidelines and training structure. Trips away are plenty! Membership of the club is open to everyone aged 10 and over who can swim 25 meters and is comfortable in and around water.
