IWD 2020

Today we celebrate International Women’s Day and we wish to celebrate all females involved in our Club as well as in sport in general. Killorglin Rowing Club is proud to support women of all ages and sporting abilities to fulfil their sporting potential and we are great advocates for the 20×20 movement, which aims to achieve a 20% increase in media coverage of women in sport, increase female participation at all levels of sport and attendance at women’s games/events by 20%.

The ‘SHE CAN’T SEE, SHE CAN’T BE’ initiative is an innovative way to start and continue to create greater parity and opportunities for girls/females in sport and increase visibility of same.

Our rowers have achieved tremendous successes over the years and many female rowers have represented Ireland at international stage in rowing. By creating female role models, we encourage the next generation to take up the sport, fulfil their sporting potential and stay involved in the sport to create the next generation of healthy, active women.
