Limerick Triathlon Club is the longest running triathlon club in Ireland. Founded in 1984 by a handful of people we now have more than 250 members. The club has something for everyone; racers, rookies, juniors, seniors and veterans. The first event was held back in 1985 in St. Enda’s Sports Complex in Limerick, followed that summer by the first Kilkee “Hell of the West” Triathlon. This race soon became the club’s Flagship event and is oversubscribed year on year.
The club has really stood the test of time, many club members are with the club since it started in ’85, some athletes racing today are second & third generation members.
We organise a Duathlon, two National Series Triathlons, a Junior Aquathon and a number of training and social events annually.The club and all races are run by volunteers and club members. While we know most of us love to race, volunteering is an excellent way to get to know people & helping out is good for the soul. We offer associate membership for those not racing this year but who would like to be involved.
We have had some very notable club members, too many to mention, but credit is due on this site to the Triathlon Club’s very talented photographer, Gordon Thomson (AIPF). All photographs on this site were taken by Gordon. He is with the club since 1990 and is one of the founding members of T.I. Media. More of Gordon’s photos can be seen on Flickr
