About TuCC

Tullamore Canoe Club was established in 2003, initially as a Canoe Club and then rapidly broadening our range to kayaking, canoe polo, freestyle, slalom, canoe sailing and many other forms of messing in or on water. We run training courses for open canoeing, kayaking, rolling clinics, 1st aid, and also do social trips on various rivers and lakes.
