Derg AC Athletic Training Facility

Donation protected

Though situated in different counties, the twin towns of Killaloe and Ballina are united by a bridge over the river Shannon at the southern end of Lough Derg. Though technically two towns, they operate as one community with many shared cultural, recreational, and sporting facilities and clubs. One such club is Derg AC, which was founded in 2013. Despite its relatively short history, the club now has a new athletics facility in Clarisford, a leafy 30-acre community park by the river Shannon that already hosts football, rugby, and scouting facilities.

Derg AC would like to acknowledge and thank everyone in the Community for all their help and support in achieving the Multiuse Athletics Training facility. It is your generous support, and the lasting commitment of our volunteers which makes this wonderful facility available for everyone.

In the spirit of promoting health and fitness for everyone in the community, a casual park user is welcome to use the facility on an individual basis during daylight hours. For regular use of the facilities, a goodwill donation to Derg AC would be greatly appreciated to help with the upkeep and maintenance cost for the facility.

Derg AC’s members, who range from ‘little athletics’ participants aged 5-7 years to ultra-marathon masters, now enjoy a floodlit 200m rubber-surfaced track with a 120m sprint straight, long jump, throws area, high jump area, outdoor gym, and a wheelchair-accessible inclusive athletics zone.

Derg AC Programs include Little Athletics, Juvenile Athletics, Fit4Teens, Fit4Teams, Inclusive Athletics, Masters/Seniors, Fit4Life and Couchto5K and Train as a midlife women. Our athletics programs benefit all Ages from 5 to 90 and our inclusive athletics program benefits children aged 5yrs -16yrs on the Autism Spectrum, with a physical disability or impairment.

All donations will go towards the maintenance and upkeep of the facility for all park users to enjoy.
