It was really great to get back to real rowing competition after such a long lay-off.     It was even better to see such a strong Shandon challenge especially from our Senior Men and Senior Women. With eight crews entered we made our presence felt.

All crews performed well and we had three overall winners – our Senior Men’s Four of Jack Dorney, Adam Murphy, Ciarán Brady and Eoin Gaffney, our Women’s Coxed Intermediate Four (See Above) of Deirdre O’Sullivan, Niamh O’Mahony, Jessica Legresley, Roisín Merz and Sarah Lonergan (cox) and our Men’s Senior Sculler (Colm Hennessy).

It was also great to see a very competitive Shandon Senior Eight on the water, finishing second to a powerful UCD Eight.
