New River Barrow jetty installed in Athy town centre

The new jetty

Kildare Sports Partnership has revealed that the installation of a floating jetty and repair of the existing structure is almost complete in Athy.

The proximity of this jetty to the boat slip will aid in the accessibility to the River Barrow by the Athy Rowing & Canoeing, Athy Dragon Boat Club, Athy Triathlon Club / Team and and the wider community.

This project was brought to light by the Athy Sports Hub Coordinator after a successful funding application was made to LCDC.

With summer just around the corner, it is sure to encourage the increased use of the beautiful natural amenity right in the centre of Athy.
