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. A description of the catchment area is included in the Catchment Map section of the website.
The river supports a wide range of wildlife and was until the early 1960s one of the most important spring salmon fisheries in Ireland. Following 3 periods when the river was closed for salmon fishing it is now slowly improving and is open on a catch and release basis.
The Slaney River Trust represents the interests of anglers and all others interested in protecting and enhancing the river its resources and ecology. Details of our objectives and work carried out over recent years are available in the What We Do Section of the website
