County Kilkenny has a number of thriving Athletics clubs and would be considered to be one of the stronger counties in Leinster at Juvenile level.

Castlecomer AC and Brow Rangers AC are thriving clubs in North Kilkenny.

Kilkenny City Harriers are based in Kilkenny City and also close by are Gowran AC and Thomastown AC. These clubs are also well established and offer coaching and competition in a wide range of athletic events.

Further south are St Joseph’s AC based in the Tullogher Rosbercon area and St Senan’s AC in Kilmacow both of these clubs are very well established and have been competing at the highest levels for a number of years.
