Skibbereen Head of the River 2017

It’s a busy weekend for sport enthusiasts but don’t mind the soccer or rugby – don’t forget to follow our rowers during their first test of the 2018 rowing season. Killorglin Rowing Club athletes will head to the Marina in Cork on Saturday to partake in the Skibbereen Head of the River (HOR). The event is run over 3000m course and is divided into a number of so called Heads where distinctive boat categories start off together and race against time. The fastest time for each category wins a pennant. The heads are an ideal event for rowers to test their endurance and power output – due to a much longer racing distance, as well as management of direction and execution of a race plan.

Killorglin Rowing Club will be represented by the following crews/athletes:

Our newbies, the Women’s Junior 14 quad, it’s their first outing together and the crew consists of Airida Mateviciute, Orla McCarthy, Laoise Murphy and Olivia Moriarty coxed by Eimear O’Donovan. Airida and Orla also form a strong combination in the Women’s Junior 14 double scull. Rhiannon O’Donoghue, Anna Tyther, Katie Boyle and Eimear O’Donovan team up to race the Women’s Club quad, while Sean Houlihan and James McCarthy take on the Men’s Junior and Men’s Club single sculls respectively. Eimear ODonovan will contest the Women’s Club single on the day. Marcus Lavery will get his first taste of competitive racing in the Men’s Junior 14 single scull, having taken to the water only few months ago.

Another newbie to the sport of rowing and the Club is the McElliggott’s of Tralee looking after our transport needs for the day! We are delighted to have a use of 172 Kia for the day to transport the boats to/from Cork. Thank you McElliggott’s Tralee!

Best of luck to all our rowers!

Results/times will be published live on the Rowing Ireland website under Skibbereen HOR event.
