Carrowmore Archers

Welcome to Carrowmore Archers

Carrowmore Archers is a field archery club based in County Sligo, Ireland. We are affiliated with the Society of Irish Field Archers (SIFA), a national association of field archery clubs that provides our governance structure including competition rules, training standards & child protection regulations.

Carrowmore Archers is a non profit organisation, run by volunteers. Throughout all our activities we maintain the highest safety standards. We teach the skills and enjoyment of archery to prospective members. We are not a business with regular opening hours or on demand archery sessions. We do not cater for Stags, Hen Parties, Birthday Parties or similar events.

We are back open for training.

During the shorter days of spring we will run introductory training sessions about once a month on a Saturday or Sunday in our polytunnel. So those new to archery can get a feel for the basics no matter how bad the weather gets (within reason). Once the days get longer and a little less cold in the evenings we will have regular evening sessions during the week where we go into more detail and help your continuous development as an archer. Archery is a skill that takes time and repetition to develop. Please use the Contact page to express your interest then we will arrange training for you when next session is available.

Following an appropriate training regime people can become club members and have full access to the club’s facilities. There is no magic/fixed number of sessions that any trainee needs to attend before they can join the club. 

Archery is all about technique and focus, not strength, which means all members of the family can participate on an equal footing. We have several family groups in our current club membership. If a child wants to learn how to become an archer we actively encourage a parent or named guardian to participate in the training so that you can enjoy the sport together, rather than just acting as a taxi service to the club!
