Welcome to Clane Athletic Club website!
Located in the historic village of Clane, Co.Kildare, our club is one of Ireland’s newest athletic clubs. The club, which is completely volunteer-led, was reformed in 2012 with the principal aim of promoting athletics, for all ages, in the village and environs of Clane.
Our coaches and athletes have worked hard over the past 5 years to build the club into a strong, reputable club and we are very proud to have won and held onto our Kildare "A League" status for the past two years.
Our club is proud to be affiliated to the Irish governing body for athletics; the Athletics Association of Ireland.
We place a strong emphasis on community, and encourage the development of athletic skills, in a fun, friendly and sociable environment.
We're based at Scoil Mhuire, Clane Community School.
New members are welcome!
