International Rowers 2014

Written by Captain Wednesday, 11 June 2014 22:49

Dear friends of Cork Boat Club,


In general when we email bomb the masses it’s with requests for help and to the credit of each and every one of you we’re never left wanting.

This time we wanted to share some good news and let you see how your time and money has helped Cork Boat Club continue to lead the way in Irish Rowing.


The International Squad selections for 2014 have been announced and once again everybody at Cork Boat club can be very proud of the fact that we are the most represented club in the country at international level with 13 of our rowers having been selected to represent their country at the Home International and Coupe de la Jeunesse regattas. Full details are available here


Nine of our rowers (5 senior and 4 junior) have been selected for the Home International Regatta that takes place in Inniscarra on July 26th.

Four more of our Juniors have been selected to row at the European Junior regatta, Coupe de la Jeunesse, in Libourne France on August 1st.


This is a great achievement for Cork Boat Club and augurs well for our crews approaching the National Rowing Championships next month.

This is of course down the hard work and dedication of our rowers and their coaches but also in no small part to the volunteers who fundraise, sit on committees, work in the café and bar and attend all of our events.


Thanks to each of you for your continued support and a huge congratulations to all of our rowers who were selected.


Make sure you check out the full details HERE


Best Regards,

John McDonagh
