IRISH OPEN 2017
Congratulations to Kilcock Demons are are Irish Open Division 1 Champions for 2017.
We hosted this years competition. There were over 230 players and another 100 coaches and supporters from 33 teams including 6 from GB and 7 from Northern Ireland. Its a national event organised by Kilcock on behalf of Canoeing Ireland/National Canoe Polo Committee and has rotated between Enniskillen, Galway, Longford for the last 10 years, so it was really great to see it back in Kilcock.

The competition really was a great success, a lovely atmosphere in the town, and all 4 pitches on both sides of the bridge were buzzing all weekend.
