Shotgun shooting takes place on Sunday mornings, starting around 10.30.
The club has a number of mobile electric traps, so the layout is flexible. Typically a five-stand sporting course will be set up, shooters taking ten clays on each, giving a 50-bird shoot for the day.
Coaching for novices, or those wishing to hone their skills, is generally available after the main shoot for the day is completed.
This comprises the main rifle disciplines of the International Shooting Sports Federation and the corresponding national adaptations thereof.
The club is affiliated to the National Target Shooting Association of Ireland (“NTSA”)
We have facilities for shooting prone and three-position at 50 metres and 100 yards.
Sporting, Benchrest & Gallery Rifle
The club facilities provide for shooting prone, 3- or 4-position or from the bench with sporting or other suitable smallbore rifles out to 100 metres (typically at 50 metres or 100 yards). Gallery shooting which requires different positions and distances is laid on from time to time as a special event.
The club is affiliated to the National Association of Sporting Rifle & Pistol Clubs.
The club has been active in Silhouette shooting for many years and has provided many National and International winners over these years. As part of our range improvement programme, we have been rebuilding the rifle range in order to comply with the latest Range Regulations . As part of this process we have just installed 2 complete sets of Silhouette bays allowing each of 4 shooters to shoot a 20 target set of silhouettes simultaneously. These have recentely been christened as part of a National Competition run the NSAI.
The club is affiliated to the National Silhouette Association of Ireland.
