Annual Club Cup took place on Sunday the 19th of May 2019.
The biggest year yet for the event that brings together alumni and
current members for a day of racing.
Due to over 30
participants, this year saw not only the traditional mixed 8 race,
but also a mixed quad race. Ergs – the usual method of torture for
rowers – were used in a relay race between all the club couples.
Previous club captains, our current captain (Conor Carmody) and next
seasons captain (Kealan Mannix), all took part in a friendly 100m
Food was a-plenty
in the barbeque following the morning events. Many thanks to our
sponsors – Brady’s Ham of Kildare and O’Connell Butchers of
Limerick – for helping feed the masses.
Big thank you to
all past and present club members who took part. We’re all
committed to the growth and progression of our club. Hope to see
much more of you in the future.
Well done to everyone who organised such a good day! 😁 Next stop, Dublin Met!
This is what these wolves wear during a cold training camp in Lough Rynn! Thank you so much to John and Ruth for the time they put in this weekend, Carrick-on-Shannon rowing club for lending us a launch and to everyone for making it a great weekend 😀
Huge congratulations to this year’s recipient of the Paddy Dooley Rowing Scholarship, Megan Carmody. On top of being a brilliant student, Megan has a long career of rowing with 2 Irish jerseys for the Homes Junior Pair. She has wins at London Met and many regattas last season with ULRC. Megan is also this year’s women’s captain. No better woman for It! Congrats. Thank you to the Dooley family for their continued support of ULRC
