About Us

We are a local Angling Club based out of Athy, Co. Kildare with members young and old who participate in a wide range of fishing experiences. 
Athy and District Anglers manage the fishing rights between the Fort of Dunrally, Vicarstown and Maganey Lock on the River Barrow and the Grand Canal. The waters are home to Brown Trout, Salmon, Eel, Pike, Perch, Bream, Rudd and Tench.

Club Members are responsible for restocking and ensuring that all angling by laws are complied with. Membership of the Club is always open and we welcome new members all the time.
