Welcome

The Slaney

The Slaney flows from Lugnaquilla Mountain west and then 73 miles south through Baltinglass, Rathvilly, Tullow, Bunclody, Enniscorthy and finally Wexford discharging into a 12 mile long narrow estuary.

The river supports a wide range of wildlife and was until the early 1960s one of the most important spring salmon fisheries in Ireland.

  • Poaching Out of Control

    A trout fishermen presence is required on the river as the poaching and killing of salmon is wide spread and out of control along the river. This is despite the best efforts of IFI. Please report all incidences with a date and location to IFI and copied to secretary@slaneyrivertrust.ie.
