Early morning training.

Welcome to our home on the net! Founded in the early 1990s, Killorglin Rowing Club (KRC) is situated on the banks of the river Laune. The river being the venue for our water based training when the tides are right! Our state-of-the-art boat house was completed in 2004 and the excellent facilities are well used for land based training when we can’t get on the river.  We are the hosts of the Munster Branch Head of the River, held on the beautiful River Laune in Feb/Mar each year. Unlike most rowing clubs in Ireland, our season is on all year round. When the Regatta and Head season finish, we begin our very strong coastal season. We have a photo album here

KRC was the first club in Ireland affiliated to both rowing unions, the Irish Amateur Rowing Union (IARU) and the Irish Coastal Rowing Federation (ICRF). KRC has grown from a small number of dedicated members, eager to revive local traditional rowing, to now one of the fastest growing and most sucessful rowing clubs in Munster.
There was a rowing club in Killorglin in the 1950’s but very little is known of their
progress. However a local man actually won the Leander Trophy in 1914 rowing for Cork BC and he is known to have attracted attention in the town.
