Dolmen archers was founded in 2003 by Pat Lyons, the club has come a long way in such a short time, bringing home national records and medals. There has also been a great success on the international scene.

In order to become a member of Dolmen archers, and by extension Archery Ireland, it is necessary for all prospective new members to undergo a beginners course, for which you will find information below. Upon completion of the course you will be allowed to join the club. We take anyone from the age of 10 up.

We take our name from the local Browneshill Dolmen, located to the east of Carlow town. The people who erected the Dolmen over 5,000 years ago would themselves have been archers and we are proud to be associated with and to aid in the continuation of this tradition.

Please feel free to come and visit at our training sessions on Tuesday evenings from 8pm till 10pm in the Presentation College Carlow, see the map below for directions.

Thanks for visiting the page and good luck with your archery careers,

Dolmen Archers.
