Outdoor Dinghy Parking – Reminder: Time to Remove

For those with dinghies in the outdoor parking. We would like to remind you that boats must be removed as soon as possible.

We hope you understand that the outdoor dinghy parking is a leased area, if we abuse the lease we risk loosing our lease rights for next year (others parties have expressed an interest in obtaining the lease on this area). The club lease runs from April 1st – September 30th each year. It would be a great shame if the club lost access to this convenient location.

If you have problems travelling due to COVID restrictions please make contact with the club ( and let us know.

We thank you for your kind co-operation and understanding in this matter.

Killaloe Sailing Club RAFFLE – Laser sailing dinghy worth €8K for only €100 !

A brand-new Laser Sailing Dinghy, worth €8K, for only €100!

Killaloe Sailing Club, situated on the beautiful shores of Lough Derg is a community-orientated, not-for-profit, Irish Sailing accredited amateur dinghy sailing club.

This little volunteer-run club has the vision to build a wonderful new Clubhouse, as current facilities are totally unsuitable for a club of its size.

Planning permission has been secured to build a new Clubhouse, with the plan including changing rooms with toilets and showers, a common room and small kitchen, raised walkways, a covered training area, facilities for the disabled, an enlarged boat shed, a new cark park and an enlarged dinghy park.

In order to raise much needed funds, the Club is running a Raffle this Autumn, whereby the winner will take a home a brand-new Laser dinghy, worth a spectacular almost €8,000!

Only 100 tickets are being sold, and 70 of them have been sold already. These tickets are not waiting around! As soon as all the tickets are gone, the raffle will take place and will be formally adjudicated.

The prize is a Laser XD ICE Blue and comes with Carbon Mast, Launching Trolley, Top Cover and Foil Bag. The winner can choose any Rig size – 4.7, Radial or Full Rig.

Anyone interested in purchasing a ticket or having any questions, please email: with your contact details and the number of tickets requested. Alternatively, tickets can be purchased via the ‘ClubZap’ app to get an official ticket number.

Remember there are only 100 tickets in total available. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
