Weather in Fahan Creek

Those of you with an interest in the current weather conditions in Fahan Creek can use a link on the Met and Tides section of this web-site to a personal weather station set up by William McAusland from Drama Queen at his house on the shore.  All complaints about the prevailing conditions to be addressed in writing directly to Willie! 🙂

Lough Swilly News is back in action!

Today we moved our News section to a new service from, so that we can continue to provide updates on the news and activity around the club.

The previous service from was withdrawn and it has taken a little while to migrate.

As a result, our archive of previous posts from the last few years is no longer available on-line, but we hope this will not be too much of an inconvenience.

Over the coming weeks further updates will be made and we will keep you informed.
