Big congratulations to our Men’s Junior 14 quad of Conor Murphy, Sean Houlihan, Shane O’Connor and Michael O’Connor coxed by Katie Fay for their win at the Limerick Regatta on Saturday. It is the first win of the season for our youngsters. Also, big well done to the Men’s Junior 16 quad of John F O’Grady, Kieran O’Sullivan, Cathal O’Donovan and Sean Houlihan for finishing strong second against the Cork Boat Club crew. Karen Joy also raced well finishing 3rd overall in the Women’s Intermediate Single Scull event. Good job everyone! On Sunday, our athletes raced for the Intermediate School Killorglin at the National Schools Championships. The race of the day, that caused some heartbreak was the Men’s Junior 16 double scull where John F O’Grady and Kieran O’Sullivan raced exceptionally, leading well with 250 meters to go and catching a crab at the final leg of the race. Those races are a real learning curve. We get them the next time! Our next event will be the Metropolitan Regatta in Dublin on the 17th of May.
