Our Club
ULKC is based in the University of Limerick. The aim of the Kayak Club is to introduce UL students to the many facets of kayaking. Over 300 students join the kayak club each year and of those, more than a quarter choose to continue active involvement in the club. That number doesn’t include the active group of associated paddlers such as all the OFB’s, the social members (people who don’t paddle but go on trips) and our external members. The club is affiliated with the Canoeing Ireland and the International Canoe Federation.
