Bandon AC was founded in 1964 and is currently one of the largest juvenile Clubs affiliated to Athletics Ireland with a current membership of approx. 500 juvenile and adult members. Our athletes come from throughout West Cork and have enjoyed considerable success at regional, national and international level. We consistently have club members selected for Irish athletics teams with one club member recently representing Ireland at the Tokyo Olympics!

The Club also promotes health & wellbeing through the delivery of recreational athletics on a weekly basis to children (Little Athletics), teenagers (Fit4Youth) and to adults. We are immensely proud of what our dedicated team of volunteer coaches, support staff and development committee has achieved to date and we continue to strive to create the best possible environment for our athletes of the future.

Our Vision

To foster a love of athletics at all levels and ages, offering state-of-the-art training facilities that will enable our athletes to be the best that they can be.

Our Challenge

The Club’s development has been seriously hampered by lack of training facilities. At present, limited facilities are rented in the local Town Park and from a local school. After several years of searching, we are delighted to have self-funded the purchase of a green-field site and secured planning permission to develop state-of-the-art athletics facilities at Clancoolbeg, Bandon. This is a huge undertaking & one which we hope the Community and local Businesses will work with us to achieve.
