Naming and Launching of New Fleet
Monday, 20 April 2015 12:01

The naming and launching of the new fleet of eight racing boats on Sunday 19th April was held in brilliant sunshine and attended by a large group of members, alumni, parents and supporters.   Tom Rose, President welcomed all present and Jerry Buttimer TD made a very appropriate speech at the unveiling of the names.   In line with club tradition, the boats were named after club members - in this case eight members who had contributed significantly to the development of the club since its re-establishment in 2005.    Those honoured were Tom Rose (8+), Frank Coghlan (4-), George Costello (4+), John Cashell (4+), Mick Looney (4+), David O'Donovan (2-), Ken Lynch (2-), Brían O'Flynn (1X).    Special thanks to the ladies of the catering committee who organised a cake sale and provided tea and coffee for all.
